PRODUCTIVE IDEAS DURING QUARANTINE:

  • Do things you would not otherwise have been able to do – write that book you always wanted to write, etc.
  • Think about marketing and business promotion efforts: touch base with contacts with whom you have not been in touch with; research and draft an alert or article; develop a CLE program
  • Satisfy your CLE requirements for 2020 using online resources like PLI
  • Go through your contacts for “spring cleaning” – delete those that are of no value, update those who are, and add new ones from your recent experiences.
  • Clean up your Outlook Inbox
  • Catch up on the legal periodicals, articles, blogs, etc. that you have not had time to read in the past
  • Exercise
