Helping the client make the right decision for them.

Not the easy decision, or the choice of least resistance in the organization. Not the quickest fix or coolest new tech.

The right choice, for them. That's sometimes the hard choice. It's sometimes saying "This has to be re-done, there's nothing salvageable" and sometimes saying "Let's experiment with this!"

It's helping them understand what you understand, so that soon they won't need you.
