Leaky Faucet Theory

Peter Shankman of ‘Faster Than Normal’ says:

Think about it (problems) like a leaky faucet that’s overflowing the sink onto your kitchen floor: you could spend all your time constantly cleaning up the water that’s destroying your floor (i.e., fixing the things that happened because a trigger set you off) or you could fix the leak in the first place. Fixing the leak is a lot easier, right?

Often when things go awry, we tend to blame non-important things instead of fixing the source. Finding the source might not always be hard if we really try.

I am not intending to impart wisdom here. I am just reminding myself of this. 🙂
