Last year wasn't a fluke for me...I did it again...I filed my taxes on time this year! This may not seem like a great feat, but I used to be notorious for procrastinating on my taxes and filing an extension.
What's been the difference for me, you ask? Well, I got married in 2005 and my wife was not about to let me procrastinate and let the government keep our refund (yes we got one again, which means I need to adjust my W4...). My wife holds me accountable and I love her for it (though sometimes I don't like it!).
So, all you recruiters out there, if you are like me and are prone to procrastinate, find someone that will hold you accountable. If you can't make yourself get on the phones, find someone who will get you to do it...could be your manager, could be your peer, could be your spouse....if they care about you they will help you by holding you accountable.
Thank God for my wife!!!
Happy Tax Day. :)
