Quickbooks is a Metaphor for my Life

My family owns a construction business. Out of necessity, I became the Office Manager/Secretary/Bookkeeper. I have no background in or knowledge of accounting. I failed economics 101in college. But there I was at some point in the forgotten past, with a new box of Quickbooks business accounting software that I installed and set out to learn. Not knowing anything, I set up accounts and items and lists and classes (???) in the way that seemed best to me. The Bible verse that comes to mind here is Proverbs 14:12. "There is a way that seems right to a man, (or an ignorant bookkeeper) but its end is the way to death."
