As humans, we're ALL about beginnings and endings. When should I start a diet? Monday, of course. What's the best part of running a marathon? The end, duh.
This preference for beginnings and endings, however, causes you to miss out on the most important part: the middle.
The magic is in the middle. Whatever goal you have, whatever it is you're trying to achieve, the journey to your destination is where it's at, not the end result.
Give this episode a listen to find out why the magic is in the middle and how you can embrace the journey instead of the destination.
Presenting in the courtroom carries with it a million tasks that can be overwhelming both for you and for the jury. More often than not, you’re overcomplicating things.

Give this podcast a listen to learn what the three things are and how to approach them efficiently. You can listen on iTunes or on your preferred podcast app.
My FB Live from Wednesday 08/28/19 has been uploaded as a bonus episode on the From Hostage To Hero Podcast. This week we discussed "Why You Should Let Jurors Control Voir Dire."
Long, complex opening statements with lots of legal jargon leads to bored, confused jurors who tune out.
Are you making these mistakes in opening?
Your opening should be "sticky" so jurors can remember your theme all the way into the verdict room.
Opening is your one time to "hum the tune" so to speak of your trial themes. But making these three mistakes will get in your way.
