So, as the year ticks down and I am close to closing off the books for this year, I am pausing to think if I should upgrade my Accounting Practices.
My cascading spreadsheets system works well, and it does help keep me on track and focussed on this payperiod and accomplishing my goals.
So, for the most part it works and works well, yet it does lack hindsight. I can’t run a report and look at exactly what was my largest expenditure or where my income came from.
I can’t look at the data and try to spot trends, not really. I can’t even easily figure out how much I made this year.
So, I am thinking, once again, if I should get some sort of accounting program and do my books with that.
I may not go as far as a full-blown accounting system and set myself up as if I was a business, but . . . something.
I am still divided on this and not sure which way I will go, but the impulse is there.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
