tidbit on consulting...

MCNews: If you could offer advice to a new consultant, what would it be?
Peter Block: First, you have to learn how to manage your anxiety. For the first five years, you look out three months in your calendar, and all you see is empty days. You have to get used to that.

When Warren Buffett wrote his 1979 Chairman’s Letter he said:

Both our operating and investment experience cause us to conclude that “turnarounds” seldom turn, and that the same energies and talent are much better employed in a good business purchased at a fair price than in a poor business purchased at a bargain price.This applies to more than financial investments, you should think about this when investing your energies and talents in projects or companies. The temptation to save a failing project is high, but how much more could you achieve if you put that energy into building something new, something great.
