Jim Calloway’s recent column for Lawyers USA entitled Using Checklists in Your Law Practice is worth the read! If you need some inspiration to help you get organized or improve efficiency, take a minute and check out his column. If you really want checklist inspiration, Jim recommends reading The Checklist Manifesto by Atul Gawande. It is not expensive in paperback, but it is even less if you use one of the free reader applications to purchase and read it.
Kindle and Nook both have free reader applications which can be installed on almost every platform including iPhone, iPad, Mac, Android, Blackberry, Windows PC or Windows Phone 7. You don’t have to own a Kindle or Nook to take advantage of the reader technology. Install the free application and then purchase the book to read wherever and whenever you have the time. Put it on your checklist!
