"Energy and persistence conquer all things."
The holidays are long over, new year's resolutions have been set aside, and we are well into 2023 now. Busy season is ramping up, new regs and forms are being released, and we all are trying to keep up with the latest developments! It takes persistence, tenacity, and determination to keep up with accounting and tax rules and regulations as they continue to modify and evolve overtime. This all certainly makes tax update and review courses popular at this time of year!
While persistence is critical, we also need to keep our energy levels up to carry us through busy season. Some recommended ways to stay energized throughout the day are:
Let in the sunlight
Start the day with protein
Limit caffeine (ouch!)
Take a multivitamin
Get plenty of rest
And, of course, limit stress
Along those lines, here are some jokes to lighten your stress level!
Why don't skunks have to pay taxes? -- Because they only have one scent!
How does a pirate report treasure on his taxes? -- On a Schedule Sea!
What does an accountant say when boarding a train?-- Mind the GAAP!
