Your Degree is No Longer Required!

I stumble into an article from womensarticle.com that some degrees will be put to an extinction and one of them is Accounting. I was kind of offended since it’s my profession. So it said, “basically if a Quickbooks can do it, you don’t really need your accountant” Any people with the same profession would laugh so hard at it!

So I was thinking, do you think that accounting is only about recording financial transactions? That would be too underestimate of the accountant’s profession!

Then it said that “the changing course of this career requires less number crunching and more insight, and another good alternative to this degree is finance, where you can be dynamic in your career“. Let me tell you simple thing about accounting, Quickbooks doesn’t tell your boss what’s happen with the numbers, what could go wrong, what could be done to improve, and so much others.

If you only see one point of accounting application system, you basically neglecting the power of analysis. What we can do with Quickbooks is like what coding looks like? You input the logic into a programming language and it produces a result. You can run an accounting application system with journal’s logic in it and it will automatic result but it stops there. The result has to be interpreted to people so they understand.

Another thing, not many companies could afford good accounting application system. It always different from one company to another company, talking about the size of it, the transactions number, the cost and benefit perspective, and in what country your accounting’s work is.

Unless, software’s company provide companies with cheap sophisticated accounting application system that integrated from front to end, it will still need more decades for accounting degree to be thrown away like garbage.

There’s also a tendency to marry two profession IT and Accounting to one profession, which could be pretty much awesome, but still you need the accounting degree as a proof of your credibility in the accounting area.

The only thing I agree from that article is the career dynamic of finance. It’s true in the real world, because you can’t automate the finance in greater scope than the accounting. It needs a lot of thought because it affects the survivability of  all companies.

I would appreciate your opinion about this matter, so that we can learn from each other better to live this life abundantly!

Thank you.

Life Is Not Linear or Even a Math To Solve!

Why people suicide? Because for them life is linear and 1 plus 1 equals 2. Who said that? Either you are god damn smart or god damn dumb! There’s always something wrong with the concept of Karma, if you do bad then you will ended up bad.  It’s just stupid, because like a game, life always have a cheater on it.

People can cheat dead! They can cheat bad luck! As strong as the concept of Karma itself, life cheating is also even an ancient concept that lies side by side with Karma. The mummification, black magic, white magic, the power of money, the power of lies and etc. All of them are the vehicles for cheating Karma. How many people escape from Karma? Look at the stars, if you can count it, you know the numbers!

Karma is always looking at the result of your action. If you view life like that, it’s one of many ways to die sooner! Life is learning and evolve, and you don’t have to solve its problem, because you can let it go and walk away then look another way to see something worth living for. It doesn’t ended up with arithmetic!

When a storm crushes your family’s place, do you go right away to them or wait until the storm calm down? There are something you don’t have to do even if it’s concerning your most precious ones. And if they die, did you feel guilty because you “can not save them”? Why do you come to the logic of being the guilty one? Ask yourself! What are you going to do with the storm? Are you able to stop it for crushing your family?

Are you somewhat God? That’s why I said my point if you think linear, then you will die in agony! There are a lot of ways to live this life! Look at those kids! Dying without parents! Abandoned by society! What do you think they think about themselves? They don’t think!! They live their life! They will take any garbage they can eat for the day! They try to survive every single day.

Japanese people going for a suicide because of enormous amount of works? Couples suicide because of love? People getting bullied and end up their life? I don’t intend to offend all of them making their decisions ending up their life, but seriously is it worth it? Why do people think if A failed then I must B died? You still have a lot of alphabet to work for!!! Why now?

Why not after you end up playing with those letters then you decide if this is the time to end your life? Why die early? What’s the rush? Don’t worry whoever in the end of your life, they will be still there waiting. No need to rush! Don’t think about Karma, bad luck, or any superstitious things! It’s not worth a penny!

Think, how you can cheat life! Here I will give you a thought of it!

I would appreciate your opinion about this matter, so that we can learn from each other better to live this life abundantly!
