Every week, we’ll deliver some of our thoughts, share our learning, curate some articles (from the legal industry and otherwise), and tell you what we’ve been up to.
Another day, another privacy mess. This time it’s Google’s turn. What’s worse is that the company failed to disclose the breach because it feared potential regulatory action and public backlash, according to the Wall Street Journal. If you’re among the few still left on the platform, here are instructions for how to delete your Google+ account.
While you’re at it, you could also break up with Instagram and Facebook. And here’s a suggested playbook for how to get rid of your personal email account, though no one seems to have quite figured out how to eliminate the deluge of work email just yet. Or maybe you should just chuck your phone instead, since it’s no better than a time-sink and a distraction when you’re at work.
With all the time you’ll have after stripping away these electronic entanglements, maybe you can use some tips on how to hack your free time. Or maybe you can stop procrastinating about your to-do list. Better still, you can try to become a time realist. Or you can make up for all that billable time you’re missing out on: a recent report shows that the average lawyer bills less than two hours a day.
Or—and here’s the best idea—you could invest that time in giving some thought to what your content marketing strategy should look like for the coming year. Need some help?
