Paralegal Power Breaks are short information packed sessions that provide useful career information to paralegals at all career levels. During the first session being offered in 2017 ways in which more can be done with less time will be discussed. There is often the mistaken belief that if there were more hours in the day more can be done, but soon realize the lack of time is not the real issue, but a lack of time management.
Plan for this session by taking inventory of What you are currently spending time doing. If ever you do any personal financial management you will often be asked to first start by determining what money is being spent on. This is a very powerful excercise which will provide insights into money wasters like the cupcake that you have to have every day right after work to give you that energy surge to take your children to their after school activities and satisfy that sweet tooth. Delving more into this you realize that throughout the week you are not only spending unnecessay money, and adding unnecessary sugar to your diet, but also adding unwanted calories.
Further review of How money is being spent may also reveal Why it is being spent. The Why can uncover emotional spending habits, egotistical spending, as well as other ways in which money can be put to better use.
The same inquiry into How time is being spent will provide insight into the ways in which time can be put to better use in order to reach career goals.
