While searching for this week’s blog post, I came across an article that was written in 2016 in the midst of tax season.
As expected, the article was about handling the stress of busy season, however the tips and advice were from actual accountants, not random experts trying to tell accountants what to do.
Although a lot has changed in our world since 2016 (especially around #4), these areas still resonate with us today as we start to dive into another tax season.
The article focused on 9 key areas:
- Plan Ahead
- Do It First
- Prioritize Self-Care
- Cut Out The Commute
- Schedule Work and Schedule Breaks
- Enlist The Village
- Batch Tasks To Boost focus
- Remember You Aren’t Always Working
- Remember It’s A Season
While many of these do not come as a surprise, making them part of your tax season ritual, is not always easy. So take a deeper look into the article, What Tax Accountants Know About Surviving Life’s Busy Seasons, and start by picking one or two that you know you can tackle!
As always, wishing you an smooth tax season!
