Have We Become Afraid of Hard Work?

“The only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary.” – Vidal Sassoon

I enjoy reading airline magazines. I find they contain interesting news items and articles about a variety of topics.

I remember reading an opening editorial a few years ago, written by the then CEO of Delta. He made a statement that CPA firms could certainly utilize: “At Delta, we take great pride in our culture of hard work, creativity, teamwork, and a simple commitment to get the job done right.”

Did you notice the two words – hard work? The CEO communicates it clearly – they are not ashamed of their culture of hard work. They take pride in it.

It seems, in recent years, we have become almost afraid of communicating with our employees that public accounting is hard work. If you work hard you can become very successful.

Do you communicate that to your people? Are you proud of your culture of hard work?
