The Worst Source of Information
When I rank information sources in my seminar, this one is the lowest on the list...
"We've always done it this way."
Or variation number 1:
"They told me to do it this way."
Or variation number 2:
"My predecessor told me to do it this way."
The most amazing example of this came up this week when a woman in the seminar told me their method for determining the taxability of their purchases (they've always done it this way):
If the vendor charges freight, the purchase is taxable. If the vendor didn't charge freight, then the purchase isn't taxable.
