Too Lazy?

“I can’t relate to lazy people. We don’t speak the same language. I don’t understand you. I don’t want to understand you.” – Kobe Bryant

During these lazy days of summer, maybe you and your team have gotten too lazy, too comfortable, too laid-back. Now is the perfect time for everyone to get back to basics – the basics of advancing your career in public accounting.

Move the firm (and yourself) along by doing more of these things:

  • Volunteering for firm internal projects
  • Being a visible and hands-on manager of people
  • Developing a personal marketing plan and tracking progress via a marketing report
  • Attending charitable and business community events
  • Scheduling frequent lunches with referral sources
  • Picking up the phone and calling clients just to chat
  • Improving your time management and organizational skills
  • Passing the CPA exam quickly
  • Mentoring and coaching the future leaders in your firm
  • Volunteering to help with recruiting and campus activities
  • "Working hard is great, being lazy sometimes is great, but failed potential is the worst."
  • Campbell Scott
