“When placed in command, take charge.” – Norman Schwarzkopf

Here is something I used years ago when I was working inside a busy CPA firm.

It might make you smile but maybe you could modify it to fit your firm.

CPA Firm Ten Commandments

  1. Thou shall “Wow” clients
  2. Thou shall not be bigger than the firm
  3. Thou shall covet thy competitors’ clients
  4. Thou shall value bill
  5. Thou shall make collection calls
  6. Thou shall meet revenue goals
  7. Thou shall work smarter – not harder
  8. Thou shall not kill the internal tech guys
  9. Thou shall eliminate procrastinating clients
  10. Thou shall turn in schedules weekly, time daily, and “in/out” hourly

  • "Create like a god, command like a king, work like a slave."
  • Constantin Brancusi
