If you have ever thought that your accountant has an unhealthy obsession with time, you wouldn’t be wrong.
This obsession starts on the first day they start articles and sometimes becomes a lifetime obsession.
Time is a commodity we cannot bank and save for another day. We all have the same 24 hours in a day or 8760 hours in a year. In a leap year we get a bonus of an extra 24 hours which gets lost in the busyness of life.
When you earn your living by charging time, it always it necessary to be more productive than not.
Accountants haven’t cornered the market on that particular pressure. It is also prevalent in the medical and legal professions.
We all probably need to reasses once in a while where we are spending our time and whether it is producing the life we want.
In the meantime, spare a thought for your time starved accountant!
