Hello, colleagues!  This article was recently brought to my attention, and I wanted to share it with all of you. In my opinion, the article identifies arguably the most essential skill for being an outstanding paralegal: the quality of critical thinking. With a heavy workload and emphasis on productivity, it is important to remember to allow yourself time to slow down and think, as well as time to weigh and consider the information before you. 

Critical thinking is a critical skill for the outstanding paralegal. I hope this article informs and inspires you in some way.
