What’s the worst case scenario? This is the most common question firm owners ask themselves. This is the wrong question and doesn’t serve us as we transform our firms.
Most accountants get into the profession because they were good at math, had a family member who was an accountant and it seemed like a safe career path. “You can always get a job as an accountant.”
Further, most accountants come from a blue collar background, often the first person to get a degree in their family.
As a result, of the above we tend to lean towards a scarcity mindset.
This thinking does NOT serve us.
What if we changed the question.. to “what needs to go right” to transform our firms so rather than focusing on downside, revenue loss and what others think we will focus on making things that need to go right.. go right.
Better results starts with asking better questions.
