When Good Intentions Backfire

In my day job we call people with this mentality ‘forks’ because they specialize in poking holes, thinking tangentially, and finding ways to break a project before it’s ever implemented, thus leading to an improved implementation. Projects can live and die by the quality of the forks that are involved with them.

That same mentality can be of service in many different areas of life, especially areas where rigidity, whether in thought or action, often prove to be detrimental. It really is easy to be manipulated if you refuse to focus on anything past the end of your own nose.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
