Follow this creative infographic to learn how taking time off from your solo practice can help you to stay motivated and provide and even better service to your clients.
Being an attorney is inherently stressful. The stakes are high since our client’s life, family or money is often on the line.
People that become lawyers are typically overachievers and we put pressure on ourselves for perfection.
In addition to the pressure we put on ourselves, we have to meet endless deadlines, billable hours and deal with emotional people. It’s a constant struggle to even find a moment of peace because there is so much coming at you at once. Combine all of this and it is easy to see why lawyers often feel burnt-out.
40 hours a week is the standard for full-time employment. But for lawyers, working 50 to 70 hours isn’t unheard of.
Even though lawyers often work long hours, they are no different than other professionals when it comes to the benefits of taking time off. One of the most recent trends that’s sweeping over the professional world is the three day weekend.
The investment guidance guru’s at InvestmentZen recently put together an incredible infographic detailing the benefits and history of the three day weekend. While for most lawyers, a three-day weekend might not be the most practical or plausible solution, the information and benefits about taking time off still apply to our stressful lives.
