The necessary pest

The Necessary PestHow do you tell the difference between the troublemaker and the necessary pest?

The thing is…

We don’t have all the answers. We need other people to tell us when we’ve over-looked something, or need to take a different perspective.

Of course, we tend to get this kind of input at what feels like the most inconvenient moment.

And the person delivering it can present a challenge.

Now they might just be a troublemaker, intent on making difficulty for their own reasons.

Or they might be a necessary pest.

It’s worth getting good at telling the difference.

We need the pests…

…the trouble-makers, not so much.
