COVID-19 is forcing us to explore and create new realities. Yet accountants aren’t as practiced at creative expression. The reason is because the work of an accountant often lives in the space of consensus reality. Measurable facts, reasonableness, and expertise all feel safer and more valuable than exploring the unknown. However, if we are to thrive in our new world, we must explore the unknown.
The unknown is the space of pure potential; it is where all possibilities exist. When we allow ourselves to not know, we can become curious. In this magical space, we can discover the greater value to deliver, new possibilities for overcoming the complex challenges we face, and the chance to take a moment to slow down and (re)connect to purpose.
