Accountant here. Tricked into a supervisor position a few years ago. Still trying to figure out how to get back to the roots (numbers!). For the time being, mainly reading and answering 150-200 unproductive mails daily.

I have my own software training and consulting company. I am trying to fill up more of my free time with studying languages and develop those daily habits. I just spent 6 months on the road last year living out of my SUV and visiting clients all over the US and plan on hitting the road again in a few weeks. It is not an easy life but I get to hike, see the country, work out and enjoy being poor.

I feel your pain! I'm a senior audit manager in a large accounting firm and I alternate between answering unproductive emails and taking unproductive calls, as opposed to actually doing any accounting :lol:
