The Extra Mile

“There are no traffic jams on the extra mile.” – Zig Ziglar

I really enjoyed talking with Teri Saylor about re-engaging employees and eliminating the quiet quitting trend. Teri’s article is titled “One More Mile? Quiet Quitters Say ‘No Thank you.‘”

The article appears in Insight, a publication of the Illinois CPA Society. Just a note, the article quotes me as saying, “When I first started as a CPA….. ” You all know I am not a CPA. It is “when I first started in the CPA profession…” Even though I was not a CPA working in a CPA firm, I usually worked about 12 hours every day during the busy season, plus Saturdays. Times have changed in most firms, thank goodness.

Anyway, I hope you will read the article. The article also features Damien Martin, CPA a partner at FORVIS Private Client in Chicago.

Here’s an excerpt:

Keller also isn’t a fan of the term. “I don’t think quiet quitting is a fair description for professionals who may be happy doing exactly what’s required of them,” she says. Keller adds that these employees still want to be recognized and feel appreciated.
