Al Capone

Al Capone was a crime boss in Chicago from 1925-1931.  His nickname was “Scarface,” but he was also known as a gangster, bootlegger, racketeer, and boss of the Chicago Outfit.  He had political alliances that helped him stay out of trouble in Chicago until the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre in 1929.  The audacity of this atrocity to have taken place in broad daylight damaged his reputation and caused people to want justice.  Still Capone went untouched.

Capone had a plethora of crimes to which he could have been charged, but he was always one step ahead of the law.  But his lavish lifestyle caught up with him in the end.  Who brought Al Capone down in the end?

Procrastination

Everyone has probably procrastinated at one time or another.  They may then blame poor time-management skills, but do people turn away from what they SHOULD be doing because they don’t have time, or because it isn’t what they WANT to do.  Either way, the one who suffers is the YOU of the future.

According to Tim Urban, “No one ‘builds a house.’ They lay one brick again and again and again and the end result is a house. Procrastinators are great visionaries—they love to fantasize about the beautiful mansion they will one day have built—but what they need to be are gritty construction workers, who methodically lay one brick after the other, day after day, without giving up, until a house is built.”

The topic of procrastination is very appropriate for this time of year.  Soon it will be time to “render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s.”   Now is the time to be sure all of your bookkeeping is up-to-date for your business.  You don’t want the end of the year to sneak up on you – you have three months to get your books in a good place.  So whether your procrastination stems from lack of time or desire, be kind to your future self and contact us to start helping you today.
