The three “E’s” leading to the “big C” of independent consulting

I know it might sound glib but it just came to me sitting here. Focus is about all of those things that I mentioned yesterday, and here’s why: If you concentrate on doing things that you really enjoy then the chances are that you’ll also be really good at them. I know this flies in the face of watching the procession of dreadful singers, utterly rejected by Simon Cowell and his mates, who then say something like “Oh please let me through, I really want this.” As if wanting it was enough no matter that they sounded like pressurised air being released from the rear end of a cow. But bear with me…

In experienced professional people there’s usually a link between what they enjoy and what they are good at. If there’s enjoyment in what you do, expertise will tend to follow. Enthusiasm then, is a given. These three “e’s” lead to the “big C” of independent consulting. Charisma. Everyone you’re involved with will notice the charismatic consultant over the one who seems like all the joy has been kicked out of him.
