When you’re trying to complete the accounting for your small business, it’s more manageable if you break the main goal into small, easily achievable tasks. If you dread accounting or always tend to ignore the task until it becomes unmanageable, that can add to your stress and make your books even harder to manage.
To avoid that situation, break up your accounting into small tasks, and set alarms to prompt you to do those tasks on a regular basis throughout the week or month. For example, do revenue data entry every Wednesday at noon, look over the books every Monday morning, or always upload your expenses on the first of the month. The exact approach you take to scheduled accounting varies based on the size of your business and the scope of your accounting.
