Welcome to the Law School Toolbox Podcast. Today, we’re talking about one of the keys to success in law school – managing distractions. We live in a world of ever-increasing distractions. From technology, to analysis paralysis, to life’s ongoing drama, there are a million things you can turn your attention to at any given moment. Learn to master distractions in law school and you’ll have greater success, not only academically, but in your law career and in life as well.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Internet, social media and technology – put the phone down!
  • How overthinking and mental clutter block your focus
  • Offloading mental clutter with systems and habits
  • Life and relationships – setting healthy boundaries and efficiently taking care of your needs
  • Avoiding seeing distractions as a result of boredom
  • Improving concentration though improved sleeping habits
  • ADD/ADHD: even mild cases can manifest differently in the law school environment
