Quought for the Day* – David Maister

Rajesh Setty at Life Beyond Code has been posting “Quought for the Day*” posts for the last few weeks (see the end of this post for the definition of Quought). These “Quoughts” are very thought provoking and interesting and are included in my daily blog reading. The “Quought for the Day” for January 1, 2007 was from David Maister and is worth sharing here:

David’s Quought for the Day
“What do I have to do to earn and deserve the key relationships that are going to get me where I want to go?”

This is a very powerful thought from David, not just for consultants, but for everyone. The two most important words in that sentence, “earn” and “deserve” are the key to not only a successful consulting career, but also a successful and happy life.

*According to Rajesh, a Quought is:

Quought = Question that provokes thought. Questions are important. Thinking is important. Questions that make you think are very important!
