Expand Your Learning – Read More!
“The book you don’t read won’t help.” – Jim Rohn
Maybe your learning is too narrow.
CPAs must obtain Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits in order to continue being a CPA. It’s a rule.
Many CPAs just get the minimum and often accumulate their CPE credits in the easiest possible way. Technical CPE keeps you current and you get better at the technical topics, but that is not enough. Life-long learning is a must if you want a successful career.
Think about broadening your reading menu this year. History is full of great leaders who were avid readers. Read business books (not about tax and audit!). Read great literature.
If you want to get it done you have to set a goal. How about reading 12 books this year? I prefer you read 24, but 12 would be a good start.
