Feeling like a boring number cruncher or your accounting career is in a rut?
It might be time to change up your boring accounting job.
Here are some things for accountants looking for alternatives:
So, your accounting job is boring? Yeah, I feel you. I've been there. Several times. It didn't always start as boring but after I mastered the learning curve, if I wasn't learning something new on a regular basis then I would get bored. I expect a certain amount of routine at an accounting job, but when the days just start blending together and they feel like they're repeating like in the movie Groundhog Day, then something needs to change.
With another busy season about to be wrapped up, you can finally catch up on all of the things you put off for the last several months. Spend some time out of the office, relax, take a break and reassess your life in general. The accounting profession can be stressful at times and demand a lot of your time and the craziness that is busy season can knock your daily life out of balance.

Many accountants ask me what it's like to partner with Accodex, one of the most high-tech accounting firms in the world. Last year, I was invited to join Accodex as the first U.S. Partner. Up until now, I haven’t written much about my time at Accodex. I wanted to get experience first and reflect on what I’ve learned.
Bob the CPA invited me as a guest on his Abacus Podcast series. We talked about my experience working remotely, taking mini-retirements, and escaping the 9-to-5 grind. Additionally, he puts out a lot of great content for accountants to further their careers.
The Bottom Line
If you are bored with your accounting job, I have news for you: you ALWAYS have options. If you think that you were meant to be confined to a cubicle or think you have to climb the corporate ladder to the top to be happy, you are limiting your mindset. Life is too short to be stuck in a boring accounting job.
So what's the next step for you? Are you looking to surround yourself with like-minded accountants who want to interact, support, inspire, motivate, and assist each other?
