A variation of Murphy’s Law states, “If there’s more than one possible outcome of a job or task, and one will result in disaster or an undesirable consequence, then somebody will do it that way.” If only hard-on-his-luck Murphy weren’t right.
Murphy must have lived in a community association! Take, for example, the conundrum of committees. They’re created to give your board a way to gather information and suggestions, offer new ideas and opinions, and perhaps provide a launching point for future board members. A committee can function as a think tank or an indicator of how the community will react to a given issue. Sounds great, right? Well, not exactly. Remember what ever-the-pessimist Murphy said.
