It’s Not a Time For Procrastination

Procrastination under the guise of preparation is stagnation. – Dan Rockwell

Certified Public Accountants working in public practice are known for their very well-developed procrastination skills.

Sometimes, entire partner groups seem to become frozen in time.

It probably would seem strange to outsiders, but some of it comes from success. We’ve worked hard. We’ve done well. We are making great money. Our clients are happy. Let’s cruise for a while! We will think about “those” issues and address them next year.

Firms with that mentality (and there are a lot of them), will not find their way into the future. 2018 could be a key turning point, or not, for many smaller firms.

Plan now to make 2018 an action year.

  • "The really happy people are those who have broken the chains of procrastination, those who find satisfaction in doing the job at hand. They're full of eagerness, zest, productivity. You can be, too."
  • Norman Vincent Peale
