Hi, I am going through a few books on consulting and one thing which seems to be given a lot of importance is market sizing. What is the importance of this?

Can someone help me understand this?

Friday thoughts on Strengths vs weaknesses: I have been told that I am solid in quant, but need development on the creative side of things - brainstorming, strategic frameworks, maybe even writing.

If this just reflects how I am like, does it mean I'm not fit for consulting in the longer haul (looking at SC, PM max)? Or perhaps I should focus on DD type of consulting?
