One topic that hits true in the CPA profession is what Peters calls, Blinding Flashes of the Obvious (BFO). Here’s one I think applies to many firms:

Blinding Flashes of the Obvious (BFO) #1

If you (RELIGIOUSLY) help people—EVERY SINGLE PERSON, JUNIOR OR SENIOR, LIFER OR TEMP—grow and reach/exceed their perceived potential, then they, in turn, will bust their individual and collective butts to create great experiences for Clients—and the “bottom line” will get fatter and fatter and fatter.

(ANYBODY LISTENING?) (PEOPLE FIRST = MAXIMIZED PROFITABILITY. PERIOD.) (ANYBODY LISTENING?) (FYI: The “People FIRST” message is 10X more urgent than ever in the high-engagement “AGE OF SOCIAL BUSINESS.

There are many things that we KNOW, but over and over again, we fail to take action, we fail to implement, and/or we procrastinate. When you attended your last CPA management conference, I bet you thought… “I’ve heard all of this stuff before.” But, as OBVIOUS as it is, you haven’t taken any significant action on best practices that you learn.
