Are you looking for ways to begin the New Year the right way? In this episode of the Maximum Lawyer podcast, Tyson shares three tips for lawyers to start 2024 on a positive note. 

It is common for people to have New Year’s resolutions. Whether it be creating a good workout routine, eating healthier or saving more money, it is a great way to hold yourself accountable and begin working on a goal. Tyson shares a few things lawyers can do to elevate their practice. The first thing is to develop a new routine that is unique. This could be spending 5 minutes every morning meditating, ending the night with writing in a gratitude journal or taking nature walks during your lunch break. It is all about creating a healthy habit.

The second tip is to learn a new skill that is unrelated to law, which helps decompress and move yourself away from thinking about work all the time. Whether it be pottery, painting or coding, these new skills can help with stimulating your brain and sparking creativity in a different way. The third tip is to plan a day for a random act of kindness. This is a great way to give back to someone and pay it forward. Random acts of kindness are really about spreading positivity to others and it can have an impact in a way you will never imagine.

Take a listen!

Episode Highlights:

  • 1:08 Start a unique routine before the new year
  • 2:05 Pick up something completely unrelated to your law practice
  • 3:51 Dedicate a day to performing random acts of kindness


Transcripts: 3 Things You Could Do Before the Start of 2024

Tyson (00:08.258)
Hey, it's Tyson. Welcome back to another Bite-sized episode aimed at elevating your practice. This week, I want to talk about three things you can do before the start of 2024, so that you can get things started on the right foot. Before I dive in though, I want to remind you to check out our Maximum Lawyer and Minimum Time, which is a really unique roadmap that you're not going to get with a lot of these other people that are giving you all this.

Wonderful advice from people that have never run a law practice, frankly. And Jim and I have really dissected what has worked for us, what has worked for many of our guests over years, and we put it into maximum learning time. For everyone that's in the Guild, you get it for free, you get the whole thing for free. We're going to give you stage one absolutely free just for listening. Just text me stage one at 314-501-9260, and we'll send it out to you right away. Remember stage one.

314-501-9260, just text that to me and you'll get it. All right, so I want to talk about these three things. This is going to be a fairly quick episode, but on this one, I just want you to take action. Okay. Take one of these, take one of the three things and take action. That's all I want you to do. So here's the first idea for you, and that's develop a new routine. Okay. So start a new unique, easy for me to say, start a unique routine before the new year.

like practicing gratitude every morning or taking a daily walk in nature, whatever it may be, but we want to start developing a healthy habit, whatever that thing is. So if you, let's say you want to stop eating so much sugar. Okay, so let's figure out what that routine is for you to stop consuming as much sugar. It doesn't mean you have to get rid of sugar completely. It's, you can just start to minimize it. Think about what that thing is that you're gonna start doing.

to help you with that routine. Maybe you want to stop eating after eight o'clock. So you're maybe put on a couple extra pounds and you don't want to do, I'm not a big fan of New Year's resolutions, but maybe you want to, for the new year, you want to have a healthier body in 2024. Maybe one of those things is that I'm not going to eat after 8 p.m. or I'm not going to eat after 7 p.m. There's things like that, that you can start to build into your regular routine. That's going to…

Tyson (02:32.422)
start you off on the right foot for 2024. All right, so let's get to the second one. This is my favorite. Learn a new skill unrelated to law. So pick up something that's completely unrelated to your law practice like pottery, could be coding. One of our receptionist actually, she wants to learn coding. She's been learning coding. I think it's pretty cool. Could be a new language.

I started to learn Hindu. I've actually put it on the back burner for a little bit, but just because we've got so much going on with the firm that I put it on the back burner just a little bit, but things like this can really stimulate your brain in new ways and spark creativity. There's a lot of really cool studies about this that you can read up on if you want to, but I'm just telling you, there's a lot of studies on it that help stimulate your brain by picking up something new, learning something new. I think that there's a lot of-

great things that can come from that. So give that a try. And then number three, this is probably number two on my list when it comes to my favorites, but plan a random act of kindness day. And there is something that we do with our kids. You may have heard me talk about on the podcast before, but we do the three cards on Adventure Sunday. We call Sundays Adventure Sunday and we've got three cards. We have a stack of big cards and they pick three. So each of the kids picks a card.

and they don't get to see them, they don't see what's on the other side, and then they pick one of the three cards, or actually my wife does, Amy does. So the kids pick and then she picks one of the three, and then we get to do that thing. One of the things that's on the other side of one of those cards in that big stack is, everyone goes and does a random act of kindness. You don't have to do it in the same way we do, but by the way, that card's not being picked yet. It's a big stack of cards, but I can't wait for that one to come up because it really does excite me. But…

You can plan a day of just doing random acts of kindness. And I think that this is cool because in 75 hard, once you get to phase three, one of the things you have to do for the 30 days in phase three, if I'm remembering correctly, I'm pretty sure it's phase three, that because I couldn't wait to get to this part, because I think it's cool, is you have to do random act of kindness. It's really cool to force your brain to think, okay, when am I going to do my random act of kindness? And just imagine doing your day like that every day. It's kind of cool. But plan that day and…

Tyson (04:53.318)
you dedicate that day to performing random acts of kindness. And maybe you set a goal for doing five random acts of kindness. I think that's pretty cool. But it's a really a simple way of paying for someone's coffee. It could be writing a thank you note, but it's a simple way of really paying it forward, which I think is pretty cool. And you can really have a positive impact on someone's life by doing this. All right. And then… Sorry, I have to edit this part.

All right, so that's all I have for this episode. I wanna challenge you to pick one of these three to do by the end of December. And if you do, I promise it's gonna help you kickstart your way into 2024 with a renewed sense of purpose and enthusiasm for your practice. So make these last days of the year count in a meaningful way. As a reminder, if you have something you want me to cover on the Saturday show, shoot me a text and I'll try to cover it. If I can, we get a lot of great ideas all the time.

and I will get to them as quickly as I can. So keep them coming. Just text me 314-501-9260 and I'll get to it if I can. Until next week, remember that consistent action is the blueprint that turns your goals into reality. Take care.
