Dear Jane

Dear Jane,

I just cancelled my plans for the tenth time because of the same matter.

Signed,

Feeling Like a Puppet On a String


 

Dear Feeling Like a Puppet On a String,

Is the work flow that unpredictable or are you new to this type of matter?  It may help you understand the time expectations if you talk to someone else on the team who has experience with this type of matter/client.  It may also be that your life is not going to be predictable while the matter is active.  If that is the case, you can either postpone making plans until the matter concludes or talk to others on the team about fitting in the personal items that are important to you.  It sounds like better communication would help your situation.
