Can accountants be happy? Given the reputation of the profession, most of us would laugh at such a suggestion. Creeping deadlines, impatient clients and co-workers who steal our lunches all play roles in making sure that frown stays right-side up.
But happy accountants do exist; we've seen them in the wild. Painful as it may be, we should do our best to emulate their good attitudes because science (wait, don't puke) says happiness can make us more productive. And we don't know many accountants who aren't down for a productivity boost.
