I heard it's a normal thing in the consulting biz world: to have periods of no work and then, suddenly, a period of too much work. And it's called the feast and famine work cycle.
I'm beginning to worry about my health and cut down on the projects I'm working on. But it's hard when you've just been through a famine. When just a few weeks ago you were praying and hoping for work. And now that the work has come, and in an overflowing way, it's really difficult to turn away paying customers. They even don't get it and feel like you are too pompous. It's really hard adjusting and preparing for another feast -- famine work cycle.
