Taking some time out means some things worth commenting on get ignored at the time they occur. It also makes you appreciate the things really worth writing about.
Coming into both categories are some first rate blogs from Dennis Howlett posted in the last week on the challenge he thinks accountancy practices are facing now, but which most seem wholly unaware of. I think Dennis is way ahead of the curve on this stuff – and probably the clearest thinker on the issue that there is. I strongly recommend a review of blogs here, here, here and here on Dennis’ site to all accountants (and other professionals). Even more, I recommend thinking hard about how to act on what he says.
