You can create time. 

You don’t have to be busy all the time. 

The accounting space mostly believes that CPAs work long hours, and that’s just “how it is.”

That’s not how it needs to be. 

You can create time. 

You create time. 

You can create time with these seven tactics:

  1. Plan to your time
  2. Make decisions - faster, more strongly
  3. Stop wondering - start figuring it out
  4. Constrain - pick 1 or 3 things to focus on
  5. Try things - stop thinking of your attempts as failures
  6. Say no - stop saying you’re a people-pleaser
  7. Stop thinking busy and stop being busy - start saying you create time and start creating time

You CAN create time, and work a 40-hour workweek. Time to put an end to habitual overworking in the accounting industry :)
