Practitioners often make the mistake of working so hard IN their practice during tax season that they forget to allocate time to working ON their practice. They forget about making time for their family, spending time with friends, or setting aside "me" time.
Most practitioners work long and hard – 6 to 7 days per week, 70 to 80 hours per week, cranking out as many tax returns as possible, exhausted at the end of each day. After tax season they find it very difficult to jump start their marketing because it was ignored and unattended for so long.
Then there is another group of practitioners that keep their sanity and their life organized, even during a busy tax season.
They work 30 to 45 hours per week and ALWAYS having one complete day off during the weekend, spend the segment of a weekday on marketing activities, has a vacation planned in March to just chill out, and consistently attain new clients that will generate year round cashflow.
Don’t be most practitioners this Tax Season. Follow these time management techniques and you will find you have more time, freedom, and success!
