I took two weeks off over Christmas and new year and had a great time, but at the back of my mind I knew January was looming. Now its here and I have so much work to do before the 31st. I have been working for myself for around 7 years now and count myself very fortunate to be my own boss. In the early years I was enthusiastic and motivated but now I am finding preparing one set of accounts after another quite dull and rather than getting on with it, I put things off. The pressure is mounting and I know I've got to spend the next 3 weekends preparing accounts and returns. Does anyone have any motivation to spare?
