One of the most popular Any Answers threads on AccountingWEB last month was Procrastination – is there a cure?
Member Jaybee661 must have been surprised by the level of empathy and interest the post prompted. At the time of writing it had attracted more than 60 comments, mostly from fellow accountants sharing their advice and ideas.
Jaybee661 noted that they love their job and have a very happy practice but that they are a regular procrastinator: “The days seem to fly by without me actually achieving a lot.”
Some great suggestions were put forward to cure this blight, summarised and rationalized in the full article, available to registered, logged-in AccountingWEB members.
Mark Lee is Consultant Practice Editor of AccountingWEB and writes the BookMarkLee blog to help accountants who want to avoid being seen as Boring. He is also chairman of the Tax Advice Network of independent tax consultants.
