Saying that a Lawyer’s business software recommendation is the same thing as getting diet advice from a fat guy is a bit harsh don’t you think? Kidding aside, I know that many attorneys are interested in moving their practice from paper to computer. The older attorneys may have already done so but the younger (and even middle-aged) ones may still be holding onto traditional ways of doing things. Most of this information here will be for them, anyways.
A new diet hits the market that guarantees to help you lose 2 pounds per day, what do you do? Do you follow it? Or, do you read a few reviews just to make sure it’s legit?
Section: If you want to know what it’s like to be an overweight lawyer, ask me.
I’m about to tell you what it’s like to be an overweight lawyer. I’d probably be a great one too. But I don’t aspire to be a lawyer, because that’s too much work. You should say “Wow, you’re good at making changes to your voice when you write!” What? My Mom tells me I’m an idiot all the time, this is just her way of showing love.
Did you know that 1 in 2 lawyers is obese? Lawyers are not only prone to being overweight, but the stress of law school and their jobs can actually negatively affect their metabolism. So I did a lot of research online based on my personal experiences as an obese lawyer and created this e-book for other lawyers who want to learn more about this lifestyle.
Section: It’s easy for a fat person to gain weight.
It’s easy for a fat person to gain weight. All they do is eat, right? Well, this is true, but it’s not that simple. In fact, it can be quite complex. We’re going to look into why this happens and what you can do about it.
It’s easy for a fat person to gain weight. Heck, you don’t have to do anything and you’ll still be gaining weight. That’s what I was thinking when I woke up one morning and could no longer button my pants. After doing my laundry, I squeezed into a pair of jeans I had bought the previous year. They were snug while I walked around the mall, but by the time I got home, they seemed rather loose.
Section: It’s hard for a fat person to lose weight.
It’s hard for a fat person to lose weight. Really? Yes, really. I couldn’t believe it either when I first heard it, but then again, why would anyone say otherwise? You’d have to be an idiot (or worse yet, a liar) to think that losing weight isn’t hard. But don’t take my word for it. Ask any woman or man who has tried to lose a pound or two only to find they gained back two and a half instead of the one they were aiming for. It’s rough out there in diet land!
It’s hard for a fat person to lose weight. If you’re reading this, you likely know how challenging it is to lose weight. Maybe some of your friends have lost weight by fasting or with a special diet plan. You wonder if you can do the same; you first need to set yourself up to succeed.
Section: Fat people don’t know how to diet.
Section: Fat people don’t know how to diet. That’s a fact. What’s more, they probably could have been thinner and happier with the help of a professional Nutritionist or Dietician! http://legalfacts.org/lawyer/More specifically, someone who’s specialized in weight loss, not just general food and nutrition questions.
You burn calories by eating food, just like you do when you’re jogging (or… running to catch the bus?). And if it wasn’t obvious already, we’re going to teach you how to eat fat people (I promise there’s no actual fat person bashing here. I’m sure they were all lovely people).
Section: Fat people don’t like taking advice from thin people.
It was a day like any other at the gym. I had just finished my workout with the wide chrome belt and was using one of the open-air showers to rinse off. There were five showerheads, but they were grouped in two rows of three, nozzles facing opposite directions. Showering next to a stranger is a very intimate act, but it’s one we rarely think about as anything more than a cursory part of our daily routine as health-conscious Americans.
I’m not a dietitian nor a nutritionist nor am I qualified to make any dietary suggestions. If you want to lose weight, I suggest talking to someone who knows their stuff because they’ve studied it at a university and have their fat fingers on the pulse of the latest research (yep, I’d recommend the Department of Health or Public Health England).
It is hard for lawyers to give accurate advice about lawyer software because they are biased.
It is hard for lawyers to give accurate advice about lawyer software because they are biased. Lawyers love good lawyer software so much that they forget how to objectively check their bias at the door. As a CIO of a construction firm, customers regularly ask me which cloud accounting service they should use or if they should buy QuickBooks Desktop. I’ve never worked as an accountant but have spent a year-and-half listening to accountants talk to each other at conferences and meetups. I’m a great candidate to give this kind of advice. Lawyers should consider the same approach when receiving advice
You’ve probably heard of that saying, “You can’t look at the menu if you’re sitting at the counter,” right? It means you can’t understand your situation objectively if you are too close to it. In contrast, I am not too close to the problem. I’ve spent years reading about and using lawyer software and recently surveyed over 400 users of lawyer software who shared their opinions on 360 days of use. Using this knowledge base, I can give you valuable advice about what lawyer software will do for your firm.
