Part of this is something called Imposter Syndrome. Part is that if you are decently smart, work hard, and aren't a jackass it's not terribly hard to get good feedback.

I guess what we do is really challenging in terms like comprehending data and putting it in layman terms , that's not easy . Mostly employees at client look things from biased perspective and we bring a fresh and innovative perspective to their situation , again that's not easy. So cheers for us consultants🍻🍻🍻

We're usually just a lot better at pretending we know what we're doing than the client 🔑

Lol very true

I find that many of us are our own biggest critics. When I first started consulting I remember thinking that I was slow, that I wasn't accomplishing much, that I wasn't doing enough... It turned out that the client thought that I was doing great work and I got a really positive review. If you're getting good feedback, keep doing what you're doing and keep learning along the way!
