I hate accounting

Hello all,

I'm really struggling to keep my interest in this accounting course. For as much as I enjoy strict math and numbers, you wouldn't think it would be that different, but man it is.

I am managing an A so far, so that's good. We have one more test, a paper, and a presentation left, so I hope I can finish strong.

There was a really good quote in our $250.00 book that I would like to share. It comes from Brad Anderson, CEO and vice chairman of Best Buy.

Being a leader is not so much what you do, but what you facilitate from others...[Best Buy is committed to] respect, humility and integrity; learn from challenge and change; have funwhile being best and unleash the power of our people.

I especially like the part about unleashing the power of people. I believe that too often businesses and bosses do a much better job stifling their people instead of encouraging them to fulfill their potential.

Maybe I should work for Best Buy......................

Till next time.

Very insightful Jon. I agree about "unleashing". Was great riding with you again on Saturday! Hope we can do it again soon. I'll e-mail you the pics as soon as I get them off my camera. Later.
