Perhaps the most sublime expression of the independent consultant’s
heart and soul is haiku,
a traditional seventeen-syllable
verse form of Japanese poetry. Set in three non-rhyming metrical units of 5, 7,
and 5 syllables, the consultant haiku expresses both the profession’s philosophy
and the innermost, unspoken feelings of a consultant pursuing truth, beauty,
and elusive clients.
Perhaps the most aspirational haiku:
My client calls me,
"Six figures if you come now.”
My alarm clock rings.
