Legal Business Development: What Should You Stop Doing?


Some of us "live and breath" by our TO DO lists. We would be lost and would find it hard to accomplish anything without them. I'm sure there are plenty of heads nodding yes... yes... yes! Even the most devoted list maker among us seldom thinks of a STOP DOING LIST.

Why don't we do it? Well, I think there are a few reasons...

• We don't want to admit that something we are doing is not working or serving us well.

• We are too caught up in the momentum of activity to stop and evaluate the effectiveness of what we are doing.

• And most importantly... it's a habit... and we find it too difficult to stop.

Does this all sound familiar? I'm sure it does. Those of us who are over-achievers seldom use the word NO or NEVER... because we see possibilities around every corner. So a STOP DOING LIST will take some effort... believe me I KNOW. (I had to put "create a STOP DOING LIST" on my TO DO list. Sick... I know!)
