Law Practice Tip #6: “Just Start” to Defeat Procrastination

Coaching For Lawyers Law Practice Tip #6

Defeat Procrastination by following the theory “Just Start!”

There’s a difference between “Just Do It” and “Just Start” when trying to defeat procrastination.

If you have some matter on your desk that has been requiring your attention and you’re ignoring it for whatever reasons and feeling bad about procrastinating then just start to do something.  

Pick up the file, the phone, write an email, delegate some aspect, or do whatever to  just start on the matter. Don’t worry about finishing (which is what “just do it” might mean to you). Just Start! You’ll be surprised at what happens when you merely get into the matter.  You may or may not finish but you will feel better.

What file will you just start on?
