The Joyful Practice for Women Lawyers with Paula Price | Why Time Management Is Different for Lawyers (And What to Do About It)

What makes time management so challenging for lawyers?


If you find yourself sacrificing time with friends and family, unable to practice adequate self-care, or unable to prioritize the things you care about outside of work, you’re most definitely not alone. While the practice of law presents a few unique challenges that make managing your time feel close to impossible, the good news is I’ve got a five-stage roadmap that will help you identify your personal challenges and offer tools that will give you control, confidence, clarity, and a sense of calm around your schedule.


Join me on this episode to hear why time management is different for lawyers and what to do about it. You’ll discover how a lack of time management might be manifesting in your life, how to adopt a mindset that’s more aligned with the life and practice you want, and my top strategies and solutions for better managing your time.
