I hate plumbing!
We discovered a leak in the kitchen. I could see the drip, so I grabbed onto the joint and tightened it up. Problem solved!
This is a plumbing story, so you know it is not that simple.
A day later the leak was back. Or was it?
The leak actually never went away because I “fixed” the wrong joint! I tightened the joint right above where the drip was, but the actual leak was occurring at a junction closer to the drain.
As leaders, we do this all the time. We treat the symptom (water dripping) without fully diagnosing the actual problem (which joint needs help).
So today, I suggest you inspect some pipes, and pay close attention to each joint!
Do good and be well,
