Time-management tips for productivity by Queensland Law Society
Time management is a critical skill for success in the legal profession, irrespective of your role. The demands of court appearances, client meetings, and extensive paperwork can easily leave you feeling overwhelmed and overworked. When operating at the edge of your time capacity, the pressure to meet deadlines can lead to increased stress levels and reduced focus, making you more susceptible to errors and easily distracted.
In this fast-paced legal environment, proper time-management strategies can significantly enhance your productivity while reducing stress. Moreover, they can boost your capacity to handle unexpected requests and help you achieve your career goals.
I have enjoyed reading the recent article in the Queensland Law Society Newsletter that gives seven techniques for time management. In the article, you will be able to explore the following time-management tips designed to help you regain control of your schedule and maximize your efficiency in the legal profession.
- Prioritise Your Tasks

Hi, My name is Karen McDonald, I am a business analyst and accountant with a passion and strong focus on efficient business systems to empower business owners to focus more delivering great value to their clients.
In 2011, I founded Wise Owl Legal Practice Management as a response to seeing so many lawyers caught up with the struggle of old out of date inefficient software. I believe software should lighten your load and empower you to focus on your core mission. As a qualified accountant and tax agent, many of you will know me from my consulting business commenced in 1997, Cascade Consulting Services Pty Ltd (Cascade).
Cascade has helped many businesses, including many law firms, over the last 20+ years, some in the software applications consulting space, others in the accounting and tax practice space as well. Fundamentally in our accounting business, we aim to empower our clients to better run their administration more efficiently; eliminate redundant processes, and understand their finances and lighten the load of compliance.
