Have decided that I would stop being a short term consultant especially when the assignment involves:
1. Cleaning a mess that cannot be done without starting all over.
2. Responsibility without authority.
3. When only a report is expected that nobody would read.
4. Where quality has to be compromised for whatever reason.
5. When the client/representative expects alteration/suppression of truth.
6. Where dishonesty, corruption or favours are expected.
There that is done. A burden off my shoulder. If that means being without an income so be it. I will start selling cups of hot tea on the street.
