Episode 007: Why Am I The Only Person Moving These Cases Forward?
Many business owners struggle with this question: “Why am I the only person moving these cases forward?” In law firms specifically, many attorneys are frustrated with this feeling.
It’s important that we take a step back when we notice these feelings within ourselves. They can come from a variety of sources, one of the biggest of them being decision fatigue. If we let this go on long enough we will become exhausted and cranky and will begin to lash out at those closest to us. Let it go on even longer and it could lead to burnout. At that point, you’re not going to do any good for your clients or your team.
Therefore, it’s important to take responsibility for these thoughts. We must reflect on why we’re in this situation in the first place.
So today we’re going to help you figure that out. We’re going to explain why you feel like you’re the only one moving cases forward and how to change that. If you and your team need some sweet relief, tune into this episode today.
