Standing on giants
Motivation is a big part in getting through tough challenges. Drawing inspiration from others can help.
“Consulting is a tough business”, says Alan Weiss. You better listen when a million dollar consultant speak. From opening a bank account to steering a challenging project can be tough, especially when you are starting out as an independent consultant. So how do you get through? Motivation is a big part in getting through tough challenges. I draw motivation from family, friends, colleagues, popular icons. Even events can be source of motivation. Paraphrasing Sir Issac Newton’s words, “If I’ve succeeded, it is because I stood on the shoulders of the giants. Standing on giants helped me so far; will it get me further? Only time will tell.
