You’ve heard of the poem, The Toddler’s Creed, yes?

Today I was deep in thought during a business meeting and it occurred to me that some organizational meetings are not that far from the typical preschool. And then, I created the Consultant’s Creed:

The Consultants Creed
By Julia Angelen Joy

If it’s my idea, you get a bill.
If it’s your idea, you get a bill.
If it’s a ridiculous idea, you get a bill.
If I wished it was my idea, you get a bill.
If I thought about it, you get a bill.
If you asked my opinion about it, you get a bill.
If I give you my unsolicited opinion, you get a bill.
If I see an email that references it, you get a bill.
If someone else asks me what you’re doing in regard to it, you get a bill.

*Please note: I’m a consultant and I love consultants…I’m just having a little Friday fun!
