Ready to hit that refresh button for 2022? In this episode, we talk about improving yourself as a trial lawyer by doing this year-end review to refresh and get better for 2022. Planning can be super exciting because it serves as a fresh start. You get to have a whole new fresh calendar and fill it up with fun things, make plans, and set intentions. 


As you’re preparing for the new year, use this time to look at the trial schedule and case projections. Look at where cases will be in 2022 – how many will be ready for mediation and how many are ready for filing. Calculate the estimated expenses and schedule out those expenses. 


Even if you took just a few minutes to look at what happened in 2021, this would still put you in a better position to get ready for 2022 to hit that refresh button. Go through your calendar, your memory bank, and your photographs to get more details as you’re setting new intentions for 2022. One fun thing about 2022 is that, in Chinese astrology, it’s the Year of the Tiger  – and so, you either go big or go home.


In this episode, you will hear:

  • The benefits of year-end review and planning
  • A guide to doing your own year-end review
  • Strategies for setting intentions and goals for 2022
  • How to develop the not-so-easy habits
