Paralegal’s Journal

The new design of the lie-flat spiral-bound Paralegal’s Journal is here now, and can only be purchased through Stealth Journals. Keep your task list open right beside you while you work!

This Paralegal’s Journal is designed with prompts that are broken out into three primary topic sections of a paralegal’s life that include: tasks; information to obtain/people to contact; and documents to obtain. Jamie Whitmer, a virtual paralegal and creator of this Paralegal’s Journal, has found that she is most effective at work if she applies a basic productivity principle of focusing first thing on three medium-to-large sized work projects per day, and thought that you might be the same! Your priority items for tomorrow are best determined at the end of your current working day. To the high achievers of the world, Jamie says: “Don’t worry!” There is plenty of room left in the notes section if you have extra time to log more projects after you have completed your top three tasks.

Jamie has often thought to herself: “I document, therefore I am.” It is her hope that this Paralegal’s Journal not only makes you feel better about your progress at work, but that it will also serve as a useful tool for you for performance evaluations. The software you use at work to manage tasks and deadlines cannot be relied upon to measure your contributions or value. What of your individual accomplishments? If you do not personally note them, it is the same as though they never existed. We must make records. We must prove what we have done, and what we can do.

Each indexed Paralegal’s Journal features 200 ruled pages that are numbered for your ease of use. The numbered pages with an index will help keep you organized and make it easy to find your important entries. To really make your brain sing, we recommend that you use tabs and update your journal’s index as necessary immediately after you have completed your morning journaling pages.
