I am doing consults today and it struck me as it does sometimes how impossible it is for most people to get an objective point of view. I love this work even though sometimes it is dirty.
It is dirty because there are times you have to tell someone something they don’t want to hear but I like doing this and I’ll tell you why. It’s because it helps them but just as importantly it spares their friends!
A lot of people have some very nice friends who just don’t want to tell them anything too sticky so they send them to me and have me do it and I think this is brilliant.
It’s brilliant like sending your friend to a surgeon rather than doing the surgery yourself. Your friend is fixed and hey! No blood on you. You aren’t the one who inflicted the pain.
This benefits me as well of course. There is nothing worse than having skills with no way to apply them. I am really born for this, I’d say.
