Do you remember the old story about a soldier undergoing basic training? He was consigned to KP duty and given the task of sorting potatoes. There was a mountain of them, and the mess sergeant told him to put all the bad potatoes in one container and all the good ones in the other. The sergeant came back after about two hours and saw the soldier staring at one potato. There was nothing in either container.
The sergeant said, “What’s the matter; don’t you like this job?” The soldier said, “It’s not the work; it’s the decisions that are killing me.”
