Resolutions for Lawyers – 2005 Edition

One year ago, I posted this:

Because we all want to become better lawyers, make more money, work less, spend more time with our families, and generally retire rich, happy, and healthy, the dawn of every new year is the time we finally decide, “Well, now I’m going to do X,Y, and Z to improve my _______, stop doing ________, and be a better ________.”  And even though we never have any problem filling in those blanks, I’m going to complicate matters by starting a new, limited-run series titled, “Resolutions for Lawyers.”

Until January 1, I’ll be posting a number of Resolutions.  Basically, it will be a collection of quick ideas and simple suggestions for things we all can do in the next year to become better lawyers and run our businesses better. 

Well, now I’m going to do it again.  Between now and December 31, I’ll post 31 all new resolutions and repost a few of my favorites from last year.  E-mail me at if you’ve got any you’d like me to add.
