Transcripts: Saying No and Letting Go
A lot of this is about streamlining our days, our lives. And there are so many things when you come into the office that can just eat away at you and just destroy your productivity. I mean, that’s part of this part of this is you know, it’s about reducing stress, making you happier making your job easier.
Run your law firm the right way. This is the maximum lawyer podcast, podcast, your hosts, Jim hacking and Tyson metrics. Let’s partner up and maximize your firm.
Welcome to the show. Welcome back to the maximum lawyer Podcast.
I’m Jim hacking, and I’m taking the Atrix. Hey, Jimmy, what’s going on buddy?
Tyson, I’m excited about our show today, we’ve got a good topic, I think, saying no. And letting go. And this topic came to me when I was on my way to work today, thinking about all the things that I’ve been doing, or that I’ve historically done, that I’ve either let go of or need to let go. And what I mean by that is that in order for us to be able to move forward, as a firm, as a lawyer, as a person, there are things in our lives that have to be forgotten or abandoned, or used away from. And the greatest example of that is when we are presented with new opportunities, because the fact is, we only have so many hours in a day in a week. And we get dragged into all these other little side issues. And I definitely have a tendency to go to the shiny object and to see what the next exciting thing is. And so I’ve been really trying to focus and saying no to more things, and I think it’s really important, and the fella that I think is super smart, and every time I get a chance to hear him, his name is Derek sciverse. I’ve heard him on Tim Ferriss a couple of times. And his approach when presented with a new opportunity is if it’s not a Hell, yes, it’s a no. And I think that’s a good prison, as we grow as lawyers, and as people running law firms to think of new opportunities or new distractions, if we’re not completely all in if it’s not completely tied into our overall mission, I think we just need to say no, a whole lot more.
Yeah. And I think a lot of this is about streamlining our days, streamlining our lives. And there are so many things when you come into the office that can just eat away at you and just destroy your productivity. I mean, that’s part of this part of this is you know, it’s about reducing stress, making you happier making your job easier. The last thing you want to do is to start your day at eight in the morning, seven the morning, whatever time you get in the office, and then you finally pull your head out of your email at 11 o’clock, 12 o’clock, and then you’ve got your full to do list of items to do. I mean, it’s just things like that can just drain on you on a daily basis as you watch your to do list grow and grow and grow. And nothing’s getting done. Because everything’s bogging you down. Hopefully the list that we go through, is going to help attorneys, relieve some of their stress and get more work done. So with that being said, let’s get into number one.
Yeah, so the first one are unnecessary meetings. And meetings are a total time suck. Meetings can be very unproductive, I’ve really tried to get to a situation where other than client consults, I only have one or two meetings a week, when we have a meeting, we have an agenda, we have a list of what we want to accomplish and why we’re there. And we make it sort of crystal clear what the outcome of the meeting is supposed to be and what topics are being covered. And there’s definitely value in communicating with the people in your office. But just sometimes meetings that go on and on or that have people sitting there that don’t need to be there or that only need to be there for part of it. Meetings can really be a time suck in saying no to more meetings can really help you find that little bit of extra time to work on your firm as opposed to in your firm.
Well, yeah, daily interruptions. That’s where you have to block your time. And I go by the whole 12 week year method. I think everyone that listens podcasts knows that, you know, I create these buffer blocks where, you know, people know that they can’t just come in and talk to me. I mean, it sounds harsh, but it’s really not they understand it. They understand that they can come and talking between 11 and 12 in between four and five. I mean, those are the times they come talk to me and if they happen to see me during the lunch break, obviously they document too, but that kind of stuff. There could be urgent matters that come up but you have to block your time and having people just pop into your office for a quick five minute meeting yet five or six of those a day you’re talking about, what 3035 minutes your day just gone on little bit of meetings you actually set aside time for those distractions will help you out quite a bit. Number two, networking that goes nowhere. There’s lots of networking organizations, networking groups that can really just stuck on your time and do nothing for you. I think there are organizations like BNI that are very, very good. I don’t necessarily think that they work for you Jimmy, I may be wrong about that. But for your business wise, I’m not sure they work so well just because immigration does seem to get a lot of leads through BNI. But for me, it worked really well. For me, it’s just one of those things where it was a huge time suck. And so I had to balance the time suck versus the number of cases I was getting it, I did get some pretty good cases. But overall, it was just hard for me to do. I mean, it’s just you have the one to one you have the weekly meetings, you’ve got all these other things you’ve got to do for the organization is hard to do. That being said, I think BNI is a great organization. But there are other ones out there that they say that they’re networking events, but they’re really just fundraiser for that organization. And they don’t do a whole lot for you. You go to them. And if you feel find yourself sort of regretting going to it, it’s probably not such a good thing, kind of like what you said, if it’s not a Hell, yes, it’s a no, David sciverse, he’s great, too, I would cut away those networking events. Unless it’s one of those things where I like to go out and have a happy hour with a buddy of mine every once in a while. I mean, those are things like that, I guess I could consider networking. But I’m not talking about that we’re talking about the ones where they’re coined as networking events, and they really just have a colossal waste of time. Yeah,
and for me with BNI was not the right place for me to be networking. But I’ve, I’ve made great strides in meeting people with Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and other places where immigrants hang out at fundraisers for charities and groups that support immigrants. So it’s just a matter of doing it the right way. But I do think that in this technological age that you could get by and run an entire practice without much networking at all, I did just get back from Florida. And Craig Goldfarb had a great networking suggestion, which was a targeted lunch three times a week with people that have a real opportunity to maybe send you business or refer cases to you, and I think that has value. But I think there’s this random, you know, showing up at events, so you can pass out as many business cards as possible, I think that’s just not the way to go. Alright, so for number three of things that you need to say no to and let go of, we talked about practice areas. And you know, one of the great things that I’ve ever done was to limit the number of practice areas that I have. And I think it’s really important, I think that I walked by a law firm window down in West Palm Beach on Friday, and the boys and I counted the number of practice areas that this attorney listed on his glass on the window up in front of his shop, you know, many head 1818 practice areas. Yeah, on the window, outside of his law office, he had all of his practice areas, and in a team practice area. So how anyone could ever be perceived as a specialist, or particularly knowledgeable, I mean, to me that just screams desperation, screams that I’ll do whatever comes in the door. And it also I think, makes you non referral. If somebody thinks that you specialize in one thing, and they don’t do that. And their firm doesn’t do that, that’s going to make you much easier to refer to than if they view you as competition. If you do business contracts, and immigration, then if they do business contracts, they think that if they refer their immigration case to you that you’re going to try to take their business contract work to so I think it just makes a lot of sense to develop an expertise to develop a focus to develop an area of law that you specialize in and really drill down so that you are easily recoverable. And you’ll just become more knowledgeable, we had to let go, car accidents and slip and fall, because we just didn’t have the systems like you do to handle those things. And now I would just rather send them to you let you handle them well, and then I’m not running around, trying to figure out how to get a lien lifted from an insurance company at the last minute. So I think giving up practice areas is a great way to really jumpstart and focus your practice.
Yeah, and I don’t think we can stress that point enough is the referral part of it. And I remember when I first started my practice, I was a little worried to not take everything that came through the door. And so occasionally, I would take these things that were these sort of way outside of my practice area types of cases. And occasionally I would take, I’ve actually taken three family law cases in my entire career. And I regretted each one of them. And I in all three of them I took whenever I first started my practice, and it was just one of those things where it was not worth the money I received for it. And then occasionally I would get calls back from these people, you know, thinking I was a family law attorney and reality was I just wasn’t, and but once I started to narrow it down, that’s whenever the referrals just started to blossom. You know, John Fisher talks about this all the time. You know, I think he’s probably more of the mindset that if you pick one practice area, I think you can get away with too, but you just have to make sure you streamline your marketing so that when you do market, your marketing, like one of those at a time, and I think Dean Jackson and Joe Polish, we’ll see the same thing, you could probably do that. But you do have to be very careful because those referrals, you just, if you start to narrow down and we pare down our criminal to basically just probably two and a half to 3% of our entire practice. And once I’ve let people know, hey, we’re doing we’re doing an injury. That’s what we do. That’s where all my referrals come from. They get a tunnel referrals from other attorneys from clients because they know I do injury. That’s what I do. I still have the referrals from the criminal cases from the cases I used to handle but you get a ton of referrals of useless tear those down to just one or two practice areas. The next one we’re going to do number four is outdated, firm systems. So we’ve talked about this on prior podcast, but you had to update your systems constantly. And if things aren’t working, you need to cut them out completely. So it’s probably a good idea to every year or so, or every quarter or however you want to do it. periodically review your systems that you have in place and change them if necessary. We’ve had recently update our call scripts to change things because what I just thought we needed a slight change, because the procedures are being followed specifically to they should have been, so some of the calls were getting scheduled whatever they probably could have been handled on the front end, as opposed to me calling them back. So we reworded some our call scripts, and those have been reduced. I mean, I had one call back yesterday, which is really, really good for us and usually have a bunch of callbacks. And just this week, I only have three callbacks between Monday and Tuesday, which was fantastic. He used to be it was getting up to about five or six a day, which was a ton of callbacks, if you try to call them all back with chain four and five to bunch of callbacks. So we’ve gotten those reduced with the new call scripts. And so if you do small things like that, they can make big differences in your practice.
Yeah, and we’ve been going through some growing pains here, and our systems are outdated. And we’re meeting today to go over some changes to our systems. And it’s just important to realize that, you know, the firm that you start is not the firm that grows and the firm that grows, grows bigger. And with more growth, you need more layers of people and work involved, and there needs to be more sort of supervision and backup and less interaction, you know, it’s just not feasible now for me to know every single client to be in charge of every single case. And that’s a scary place to be. But you know, that’s what sort of comes with scaling and growth. So you got to make sure that you protect yourself and protect your law license and make sure that you have good supervision, but at the same time, you need to acknowledge that you can’t do everything.
Alright, so number five is unscheduled phone calls. And this is a big game changer. For me, this comes from John Fisher. And it is changed things quite a bit for me. So as calls come in, they are routed rerouted screen filtered, works done on them before anything gets to me, the big part of this is just setting it up front. So the expectations with clients letting them know that you are not going to get me if you call me right away, if you call me and I tell them the hours that are the hours, I return phone calls. And I tell them that if you call me during those hours, you probably won’t get me because I’ll have other calls. But that will be the best time to reach me if you are going to try to call me and reach me right then. But you have to set those expectations. And I’ve I’ve adopted some of the verbiage that John Fisher actually uses, it actually gives his clients the three rules of communication so that clients understand that upfront, and they get it I mean, now, if you are in the middle of the representation, four of your clients, and you’re all of a sudden changing things and letting them know that they can’t reach you, when they’re used to calling you on your cell phone that can create a problem for you. But if you set these expectations up front, saying, hey, you know, you call me but um, it’s similar to like a doctor or a surgeon, I’m working on these cases throughout the day, I’m in court, and maybe preparing for a trial. I don’t want to be distracted as I’m working on these cases. And I’ve set aside this time. So what you’ll do is you call the office, schedule a time, give them the subject and the topic that you want to discuss, roughly how long is it going to take, and then I’ll call you back and helps in a variety of reasons. But two of the big ones are was one, you’re not getting interrupted throughout your day. Because when it takes about an average of 15 minutes to change tasks, that’s a big part of that. The other part of is, you’ll have a chance to review the file quickly, and actually see what’s going on with that case. Because sometimes with injury cases, there’s these lols like that happen. And so you may need as a second to review that file. So whenever you call that client back, you can actually be prepared to have that conversation. So it’s a big game changer. So do not take unscheduled phone calls. That’s a big part of it.
If I had one piece of advice to a new attorney going out on their own, or someone who’s opened up their own law firm, it would be to not answer their own phone. And I think that you have to have a buffer between you and the clients. And you’re right that the buffer the person answering the phone can get some of that basic information so that that cuts down on the amount of time that you need to get up to speed that it gives you the opportunity to look into the issue before you call someone back so that you can show that you’re knowledgeable. But I think that just answering your phone willy nilly, you know and jumping to the to the ringtone is one of the worst things we can do as attorneys.
I know that a lot of times these attorneys I talked to them they say oh, you know, clients like to get a hold of me right away but are those really the best clients for you? Are those the best clients that You have I bet if you go back and you reflect and these ones that are always trying to get a hold of you on your cell phone, I bet that you’re going to find that they’re not your best clients. So just take that into consideration. Think about how you would like it. If you are the actual client. Are you going to be calling and harassing this attorney on a daily basis on your cell phone? No, you’re not, you’re just not going to be doing that. So I completely take your point, I think your point is well taken that don’t answer your own cell phone. I mean, not only do you have the buffer, but there’s this the appearance of it is just to me, it kind of makes you seem like a second rate attorney. I mean, no offense by that, but because there are a lot of really good attorneys to answer their own phones. But I think the appearance for especially new clients, new calls coming in, they expect a lot, this is about expectations, too, they expect someone else to be answering the phone. So you might want to meet those expectations.
It’s also not sustainable, eventually, you’re gonna reach a point, if you’re growing, that you’re not gonna be able to answer every frequent phone call. So it just doesn’t make good sense. All right, number six is a topic that I added to the list. And that is volunteering or serving on board. So my wife and I instituted family she’s also an attorney of family practice rule about three years ago, that is that we couldn’t serve on any more boards or volunteer for things without talking it through and making good decisions. And as attorneys and members of the community, you know, we have a certain skill set and knowledge and people sometimes look to us, either at kids schools or in not for profit organizations that want support and want people to help fundraise and to help build the organizations or the schools, PTO, things like that. And so oftentimes, we’re going to be asked to serve on boards or to volunteer and I think we need to be very strategic with it. I’m not saying that you should never do it. And and I think that you shouldn’t do it, because it makes you feel good or that you want to help. But if you’re looking at it, from a purely business standpoint, that you need to make good decisions, and pick and choose very, very carefully. Because those things can be time suck on you, you need to be focused on growing your firm and making your self sustainable for your family, because your family is your number one obligation. And while it’s nice to be able to help other people, you also need to make sure that you are, you know, keeping your eye on the ball, and it’s easy to get distracted.
Yeah, and we talked about this a couple weeks ago, if you’re gonna commit to it, commit to it, you know, if it’s a call that you truly believe in, do it. Right. So truly believe it was a truly commit, don’t just do these volunteer things, because you think it’s gonna get you some business. I mean, some of this stuff has to be really calculated, you have to really think about how you’re going to do it and really plan it out. I mean, for example, Jim onder. In St. Louis, he did this ingenious thing. And he really committed to it, it about many blind deaths. But you know, I don’t know, 20 years ago, many blind deaths used to be with this really big thing, I think, and sort of before my time, and he created this organization, or with one of the parents, one of the children that died from the mini blind desk, he created this organization. And it was about letting people know about the dangers of mini blinds, things like that. And he really, really committed to it, there are things like that that you can do, but you have to commit to it. We’re not talking about stuff like that. We’re talking about the things where, you know, oh, I think I’ll go to this, I think I volunteer for this, because maybe it’ll give me some clients, cut it out. Just don’t do it. I mean, it’s pointless, you’re not going to get a client from it, probably, it’s just probably not how it is. If you’re going to do these things, make sure you plan it out, make sure you do it well. Otherwise, it’s not worth your time. Next one we talked about is email. All right. So I was telling you earlier, I hate email, I cannot stand email. Both of us have these autoresponders that talked about when we respond to our emails, I respond to them during my buffer blocks between 11 and 12. And four and five. I’m not sure when you do. I know you accused me of copying your autoresponder I may have adopted some of the language. But I got the idea from Tim Ferriss. And I know you did too. But the point of it is, is that you should only be checking your email a couple times a day, maybe one times a day, one time a day. As attorneys, we had to probably check it a little bit more often when you have court notifications. I know in Missouri, we have the electronic notifications via email, so we don’t get the paper notices anymore. So if you don’t check it need to have someone check it and I was telling you, I’m gonna hire somebody just to check my email, just check my email or I’m gonna have someone my office, check my email because it can be such a time suck. If I’m looking for an email, I will not look at anything else. I’ll go straight to the search function, find that email and be done with it. And one of the worst things you can do is, is start your day by checking your email because next thing you know you’re sucked in and you can’t get out. You’re trying to get all these emails done. So make sure you don’t start your day doing it. I would set aside a couple times a day to check your email. And the other thing is, when you get in your email, touch it once. That’s the Chet Holmes thing, touch it once. So get it take care of it, get it off your list and be done. Because you don’t want to be when you’re just sitting in there, highlighted now had been done still showed as a as an unopened item, you want to make sure just take care of once, during your time your your allotted time during the day, just knock it out. So cut out as much email as you can, because it’s a huge time suck maybe the biggest. I’ve had
some interesting thoughts about email in the last few weeks. So I’ve started not looking at email like not in the car on the way to work, not at home before I leave the house, and not until 11 o’clock. And I use that early morning time to really get quality, important work done. And an interesting thing happens when you do that not only do you not get sucked into it, but when you get to it at 11 o’clock, and you’ve already done most of what you want to get done for the day, you’re sort of happy and satisfied. And to me, when I look at the email, I’m like, This is not that important. I need to respond that they say email is the place where you go to get other people’s assignments or work that they want you to do for them, and really just loses its power when you look at it later in the day. Because you’ve gotten done, what’s important to you what’s going to move your firm forward, and then you can deal with the email. And it just seems like a much freer place to do it. I know it sounds strange. But that’s just sort of the emotional response, I’ve had to
changing things up. You’re absolutely right, it is someone else’s to do list is what it is, it’s not your to do list, it’s someone else’s to do list. So what I’m going to do is I’m not going to read it now I’ll copy and paste my auto responder into our Facebook page, so people can access it. But basically, if it’s an urgent email, something that they need a response right away, they can contact one of our employees to actually get answers. If it’s an urgent matter. Otherwise, you’re right. I mean, it’s usually not urgent, so it’s not that big of a deal. So I’ll post that in our Facebook group so that people can access that.
Number eight in our topic, saying no, and letting go is low level and busy work. And this is something that I constantly struggle with. As I mentioned, you know, things are just sort of exploded here at the firm. And we’ve really gotten busy. And I’ve really had to start with your pushing in John fishers to really make a clear delineation between what I need to be doing what I don’t need to be doing and trying to push off more of the low level busy work. And so I have committed that during the next 12 weeks, what we’re working on is are during unit and really trying to automate and delegate a lot more of the things that I’m doing. So for instance, the things that I’m gonna be given up are, you know, preparing the check. So, you know, like, we have to do filing fees and putting, so there’s no reason for me to be doing those checks, things like that, that I really just want to let go. And let Amani and Andrew the other attorney sort of supervise the initial preparation of immigration packets, and then they just come to me when they need to. So we’re going to be setting up more of a team system where there’s one paralegal with one attorney. And then I just make sure that everything’s running on time. And I’m doing a lot less of the day to day work that I don’t need to be doing. And so I think that’s a real, real big opportunity for us and a way for me to sort of step back. And I think the more growth will come when we free me up to do more of the marketing and the big picture stuff that I like to do.
Yeah, and I think we have this natural tendency to want to do the easy stuff, because it is easy. And so I think definitely people need to cut that stuff out. It’s very, very easy to get sucked into that. But if you can delegate it again, go through our list of delegate, automate, eliminate, go through that list of things to do, that’s really going to help you offset that low level stuff, push it off on to someone else, outsource it, whatever you need to do, which leads me into my next thing, which is bookkeeping, you’ve used a virtual CFO for a while, Jill ulit, who, which was a guest on our podcast, I’ve referred Jill and others to other attorneys I know. And it’s something I’m going to practice what I preach, I’ve been doing it myself for so long, but it just is very time consuming, especially with personal injury stuff. It’s very, very time consuming. And I’m sure it’s time consuming for any practice, but it’s just especially balancing the trust account versus the operating account. There’s just so many things you want to do and you don’t want to screw up. So I’ve been actually trying to find a virtual CFO, where I’ve actually been looking through Upwork so I’ve actually posted a job on Upwork. Someone to test that out to see how it is and there’s a lot of bookkeepers on Upwork. So I think I’m gonna do that. And this is was your suggestion, it’s just gonna free up so much of my time, and you can talk a little bit how much time it’s really freed up for you.
So for me, I’ve had chill as my virtual CFO since day one. And that’s been a lifesaver. I just know that I’m not a math and numbers person. And the idea that I would be spending so much time in the nitty gritty of balancing the books and all that stuff. I still get reports and review everything, obviously, but I don’t you know, know how to balance when someone gives me a refund or asked for a refund or whatever, you know, it just makes things tricky. So it’s a total lifesaver to have someone like Gil managing that I don’t need to be doing all that stuff. For our last topic. You Negative people. And this is something that we have talked about in the past, there are undoubtedly people in this world who walked through life miserable, pessimistic, negative, just black. And one of the best things you can do is surround yourself with people that are optimistic, that get it that want to improve, that strive for doing good legal work and running a good successful law firm. You want to spend your time with those people, you don’t want to be hanging out with the yours a Negative Nelly, that just is not a fun way to go through life, you can still be friends with them. But you don’t want to spend too much time with them. Because that’s just, you know, wasted energy.
You know, I got a simple rule, right? You want to be around people that energize you and motivate you. That’s simple, right? If they don’t do that for you, you don’t necessarily have to cut them out. But don’t spend as much time with them spend the most time you have with the people that energize you and motivate you. And that’s why I hang out with people like you, people like Gary Burger, John Fisher, things like that. Actually, they motivate you, they keep you on task. It’s all the things that just keeps you moving, right. And so the negative people can bring it down, they can suck you down, they can suck your time. It’s not good for anybody. So not only were the stay much more than that, but just people that energize you motivate you hang out with those people, the most everyone else, either minimize your time you spend with them or cut them out completely. That being said, right, number 10. Let’s get into your hack of the week, hack of the week. So I got
a new iPad Pro, it’s pretty big and monstrous, and I’m pretty excited about it. It’s great for reviewing forums and checking on things. But in doing so I had to reload some of my Kindle books onto my iPad. And that reminded me of one of my favorite books. And it was actually the second book I ever bought on my Kindle. And that’s the The War of Art by Steven Pressfield. And it’s a great book, it talks about how resistance is always there, resistance is always trying to stop us from breaking through from doing our best work. And it’s just a great, great short little book that I highly recommend The War of Art by Steven Pressfield.
And my tip of the week is not a product or anything else. But my tip is gonna go along with what we talked about today. And it’s to go into your phone and remove the alerts for things like Facebook notifications, email notifications, and other notifications. I keep calendar notifications, and I keep text messages. Those are the only two notifications I have on my phone. That way I don’t get sucked into getting the email that comes across my phone. And then I want to check it and I want to go read it right away. If I need to check an email, I usually know what’s coming. And so I’ll go in and check when I need to check it or I’ll go during my time, am I a lot of times for checking my email. So go on your phone, and it’s going to do two things. It’s going to reduce the amount of stress it’s going to free up your time. It really is. And so, go week, go a day, try it for a day and see how you like it. And I guarantee you’re gonna love it. So turn the alerts off your phone. That’s my tip of the week.
