Good planning can turn obstacles into stepping stones for meeting goals (e.g., I view the Rules of Procedure as a guidebook to litigation, not the pain-in-the-butt many legal professionals characterize them as). So I’m including here this post from Vicki Voisin, The Paralegal Mentor, in its entirety:
Paralegal Practice Tip: Billable Hour Goals? Do the Math!from Vicki Voisin – The Paralegal Mentor with Paralegal Career Strategies by Paralegal Mentor
Most firms set annual billable hour goals for attorneys and paralegal. Reaching those goals is very important for a variety of reasons, the primary one being to demonstrate value to the firm.
If you do not break down the billable hour goals into ‘chunks,’ it’s a good possibility that come December 2012 you’ll find yourself falling short of the goal or scrambling to do two months’ time in one month.
Neither is good, one is virtually impossible. Instead, you need to do a bit of math and some simple planning NOW to be sure you meet your goals eleven months from now.
I’ll be revealing how to do the math and the planning this coming Tuesday, December 13th at 1:00 pm Eastern time when I present Your Big Billable Hour Breakthrough: How to Turn Your Time into a Billable Hour Gold Mine. For more information, follow this link.
Note: This course will provide 1.5 hours MCLE credit. Certificate of Attendance provided to all registered attendees.
As always, I’m dedicated to your success!
