Its been quite some time.. but no worries, things will be as usual again. I hope so. Anyway, as  you all know, i've gone to a new company and right now is attached with a project somewhere across town. Every morning i go through hell to get to work. On the afternoon, i back tracked through hell to get home. Well, at least the hellish morning commute prepares me for the hellish work. Well, it's not as hellish actually. I kinda liked it. Until my boss burst the bubble of course!
Yesterday, he held a meeting to give us pointers and advice on how to be a good consultant. Coincidentally, there's seven hallmarks of a consultant, as there are seven layers of hell, seven deadly sins and seven eleven.
From his lengthy explaination, i discovered that i lack most of those hallmarks of a consultant. Doing extra poor on hallmark number two and three. Which are diligence and communication (i massively paraphrased here. The original hallmarks are quite lengthy. now you can see why i failed hallmark number two).
It was rather interesting to hear his example about hallmark number two. Interesting if you're not me of course.
the end

Hermm.. gud to hear. Im a tad bit bored lately.

And blogger had been a tad bit troublesome too. Ur comments still had not came up.

As for dilligence and comms.. i thot most of us have dilligence? Only you need to bring it out from ourselves.

Communication is a gift. It can also be perfect with training.

But.. being comfortable with it? That what makes our characteristics differs.
