    178: Mental Models (Charlie Munger)

    20:22

    It's often hard to understand our complex tech-driven world. That's why we need "mental models" to simplify the complex and make it more understandable. Charlie Munger is a famously successful lawyer who popularized the idea of using mental models. In this episode, Ernie explores how lawyers can use this tool to "make their thinking visible" as they do their knowledge work.

    177: Building a Better Biography (with Megan Hargroder)

    38:32

    To attract better clients you need to give greater assurance that you're someone they'd feel comfortable working with. Or even better that they yearn to work with. The best tool for doing this is your biography, but not via the usual "obituary style" litany of accomplishments. Rather, you need to tell the story of who you really are, and why you really care about helping people. Of course, it's hard to tell your own story. In this episode, Megan Hargroder shares the insights about doing this effectively, which she's learned by working with hundreds of solo and small firm lawyers—helping them not just with a website. But also helping them tell the story of who they really are.

    176: Make Knowledge Work More Visible

    20:56

    We need to be constantly mindful of what we're working on because it's easy for important work to slip through the cracks, figuratively speaking. The best way to do this is to make our work visible. Not literally, but figuratively. The thing to keep in mind is that our knowledge work is mostly mental and therefore not visible. And when information is intangible or invisible it's easy to forget about it or misplace it. That's why we need to use every means possible to keep it from slipping away—including using automation.

    175: Make it Personal

    32:07

    If you're willing to go beyond the superficial and get more personal, you'll attract much better clients. It feels awkward at first, but it's vital. In this episode, I'll share some really personal things that I don't normally share. Not as a "marketing ploy," but to demonstrate that deeper connections come from going beyond the supposedly "safe zone" of superficiality. I'll share the true reason why I became a lawyer. It's not anything that anyone would ever guess. But once you know that true reason you'll know a lot more about me than even some of my long time friends probably know.
