What is the sign of the apocalypse in a consultant's world?
Layoffs - no, that's just every tuesday and thursday
Cutbacks - nope, that's just the end of each quarter
Moaning and complaining - nope, that's just Monday (and Tuesday, and...)
Here is the sign:
I'm standing in my client's office and an executive walks in. He looks at me, pats me on the shoulder and says, "...you might be a consultant, but we still like having you around.".
Make peace with your Maker. The Executives like their Consultants.
