Practice Establishing Positive Habits Before Setting Goals
Setting goals in law school is a great practice, but it is only a part of the process of earning success. Goals can be seen as guideposts that give you an idea of what direction you would like to go. Goals, however, are not the routine habits that you use to focus your efforts to obtain those goals. Take some time and examine your personal and work habits. Evaluate which ones help you move toward your goals and those that hinder your progress. By enhancing or establishing productive habits and eliminating those that cause inefficiencies you will be able to reach your goals faster and be able to establish new ones to aim for.
Happy New Year! In February, we celebrate the contributions of African-Americans during Black History Month. If you would like to check out any of these books, please ask the circulation staff to place a hold on it for you, and you will receive it at the end of the month.
