The Smartest Person in the Room

As a consultant, your livelihood depends on showing up at meetings and being the smartest person in the room. Say the average meeting has 10 people in it and you go to 10 of these meetings per year for 10 years. That puts you in the top 99.9%. But before you get too cocky, consider that there are 10,000,000 people in the Mid-Atlantic region and your next meeting just might have one of the 10,000 people out there who is smarter than you are.
