Legal Business Development: What Could You Promise?


Last week I talked about saying "NO" or "NEVER" and making a "STOP DOING LIST". This week I would like for you to ponder the thought of making a GAME CHANGING promise... "I will" or "I will never."

Seth Godin calls it "Delivering on Never". He suggests...

• I will never miss a deadline.

• I will never fail to warn you about a pitfall.

• I will never violate a confidence.

• I will never be late for a meeting.

Imagine the power in these statements. Now, some of you are breaking out in a cold sweat, I am sure. But think about it... YOU are in control of many aspects of your practice, and if you focused on making something happen YOU could do it... couldn't you?
