In reading the book Guitar Lessons: A Life’s Journey Turning Passion into Business, I came across a concept I had not really thought of before. The reason I got into public accounting was because it changes every day, there is always a new challenge – a law change, a new concept or even a new blog post to write but what do I do every day that makes it worth doing every day.
According to Bob Taylor, the reliance on a schedule gives your business stability “If you’re a baker, you bake—every day. If you’re a writer, you write every day. Heck, if you’re a thinker, you think every day. And if you’re a pop star with hit songs, you sing those same songs quite a bit, if not every day. It’s all in how you perceive it. I found the reliability of a consistent schedule to be very satisfying.”
Schedules are something I have always bulked at but I am going to try harder at it because I am an accountant and that means my job is to help people stay accountable to their businesses. So why should I be any different? Stay tuned to see how this plays out, in the meantime let me know what you think, write a comment below about how what you do every day because that is really who you are.
