|Quality work is important.
|Quality rest and relaxation is important, too.
My plan is to resist the temptation of laziness and embrace this season as an opportunity to serve my clients at a higher level of mastery. Here's why:
- I wonder if American Society has declared war on work. When's the last time we saw a TV commercial promoting a good work ethic?
- If we didn't have work, we would have nothing. In this interdependent world we live in, everything we have is due to someone working, including the computer I'm using, the electricity that makes the computer and the lights work, the clothes I'm wearing, and the lunch I'm enjoying between sentences.
- Helping people navigate the American tax code maze is a valuable service. For example, I saved someone $636 in taxes just by asking that client a simple question and listening to the answer.
- When I'm not doing taxes, I help small business owners keep track of their businesses through accounting services.
Perhaps one of our biggest challenges in this entertainment age is to esteem work and effort in its proper balance and pass that positive value along to our children. Work was a gift given to us, but a fallen world has made it difficult. Part of life is overcoming that difficulty.
