For some cases, nothing is urgent right now. It’s easy to leave those cases on autopilot.

What you focus on is what you get. If you really want to avoid the expense and stress that go with delaying case resolution, you need to align these:

  • Thoughts. Concentrate on one, just one, file and put together an action plan in your mind specifically on what you can do right now to bring it to resolution. That may well be mediation. Do you really need that pending deposition when everyone knows pretty much what that witness will say? How about trying to resolve the case now without it?
  • Words. Document the plan and communicate it to everyone needed to effect it. Tell your lawyer what you want to happen next. Contact opposing counsel to explain your plan. Set deadlines.
  • Deeds. Don’t slip back to inaction. Too many so-called action plans are never implemented. Calendar a follow-up date to make sure your plan is moving forward.

People prone to procrastination find that forcing themselves to action on one matter prompts them to tackle another and another. Taking ownership of a situation is challenging. It takes courage. It’s the way to get the result you want.
