I’ve always admired those people who are continually excited by what they do, it’s a talent that I do not have. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy being an accountant, but I’m not always excited by it.
Bookkeeping and taxes are usually not too exciting, but they do offer an opportunity to discover ways we can impact our client’s lives and viola – excitement out of the mundane. We work with a lot of organizations whose mission is dedicated to helping others, these people are almost always excited, which is at times, contagious. When we can help those client’s spend more time and more resources on their missions, I get excited too.
I’ve been working on some ideas for our business and that get’s me excited too, so maybe being an accountant is more exciting than I thought.
