Waste vs Necessity

What’s the line between wasting your time and doing something that is a necessity?  Working in finance, I understand the value of an audit, but feel when answering auditor’s questions, I’m only wasting my time.  Audit is not what draws me to business.  New deals and growth draw me to business.  When auditors ask for certain assumptions, I cringe, since often times these assumptions can be debated for days/weeks/months before a hard conclusion.  Let us cut the internal discussions and lets start creating something of value.  Again, I understand the importance, but ultimately a mediocre audit versus a great audit won’t generate an extra dollar of cash from a customer.
