Spring Cleaning Tips: Unclutter Your Practice (and Your Life)

Allison Shields’ “Less is More” on her profile at JD Supra. I’m not sure I agree with Shields that less is more, but she’s spot on when she says it’s better. Particularly when it comes to out-of-date electronic files, old documents and periodicals, meetings you don’t really need, and all of the other things that clutter up your life. Shields thinks you can do without 50 of those things, and she provides a useful list to help you take your first steps down the path of getting along with less.

The first item on her list? Your worst clients. Yeah, that’s right, the clients that cost you more than they bring in, the clients that argue over every bill, the clients that miss appointments and distract you from the ones you appreciate and the work you love. The “20% of your clients” that give you “80% of your headaches.” Think you can do that? It won’t be easy, but it will make your practice – and your life – better, richer, and more fulfilling. Read the post. And start clearing out the clutter.
