Too often in life, the power of choice determines our future. Clarity of purpose and goals ensures success.
What does all of that mean? Let’s figure it out.
Consider this, the dying wish of someone on their deathbed. What wisdom do they have to impart with us still in mortality:
1. I wish I had the courage to fulfill my Dreams
2. I wish I hadn’t worked so hard
3. I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings
4. I wish I could have spent more time with my Friends/Family
5. I wish I had smiled and stayed happier
6. I wish I was nicer to people
7. I wish I had Worked on my Inner beauty rather than Outer
– Top 7 Life Regrets and Lessons taught by People on Deathbed by Payal Bansal and Lessons for life
Realizing now that life is short, notice that 1 & 2 are related to the time we spend and the work we do. Items 3 through 7 are attitudes, feelings, relationships. Understanding part of life is the journey to become a better person, being true to ourselves and convictions is important. What we are going to focus on now is are our work and our dreams.
Do we work for ourselves or someone else? This is not a question asking who writes the payroll check but first a question of why we work. Is the work that we do rewarding, is it a career we are proud of. Are we good at what we do, in fact, are we the best at what we do? Does it make a difference? At the end of the day, is the world a better place because of what we’ve done?

* Disclaimer, unfortunately, there are some states where the terms accountant and accounting have been regulated such that regardless of the services offered only CPA’s or degreed accountants can refer to themselves as such. This is no different than a doctor doing the work of a nurse and still referring to themselves as a doctor. If you are paid to be a nurse, and you do nursing, you’re a nurse.
