    Hello Ann,

      Thank you! That’s so nice to hear, and what motivates me.

    I am enjoying the podcasts. I found these procrastinator tips to be super timely for me. I especially needed that reminder to speak up and not stew. If I do not speak up, no one is aware of how the situation is impacting my workload and/or my attitude. I am putting a sticky on my monitor right now! Thank you!

      So happy to hear that, Victoria! As I write this comment, I’m working on a podcast episode to help with paralegal burnout. Look for it to be out in a few weeks. Can I borrow your sticky note idea?

        Borrow away! Some of my best practices are a modification of someone else’s advice/tip to me, so I definitely do not mind sharing. I look forward to more podcasts!
