We clicked!

2006 is the first year I got myself involved into consulting. So far I liked it. I learned most about patience, persistence, endurance, perseverance and how to maintain a calm face under 'torture'. I tell you, I'm lousy at all of the above. But, I got through it and now I can say that I'm quite proud of myself.

You don't think that I made it through the depression period all by myself, do you? No, I did not. For there is no 'I' in 'TEAM', I made it through the help of my amazing team members. I've never met a group of people that can all 'clicked' the first time they met. But, that's what happened and I'm so happy that it did. I was also lucky to get to work with a wonderful group of customers. They were kind, understanding & cooperative. Not all of them, of course, but I'd rather look on the bright side.

I've always thought that handling customers' requirements and expectations are the hardest part of being a consultant, but apparently it's not. At the end of the project, I learned the harder than hardest part.

Parting. Believe it or not, but try to imagine that you've spent six whole months, day and night with your team members. By now, they are no longer just team members, they are your good friends. The friends that had supported you, motivated you and kept you moving. Since we all come from different countries in Asia, we all have to go back. And saying goodbye was the hardest part because there will be a slim chance that we will ever meet again.

A friend told me that this is the part of consulting that I have to bear with, so get use to it. The truth sometimes hurt, but in this case I wouldn't get upset because of it. Our 'world' is so small. I'm sure we will meet again... someday.

To all my team members, I had a great time working with all of you. Hope our paths will cross again. Take care!!!
