A Scatterbrained Anecdote

I’ve been musing on this parable that I heard on a podcast interview with Josh Waitzkin, repackaged:

There once was a donkey that was faced with two options:

To his left was a bowl of food.

To his right was a bowl of water.

The donkey was both hungry and thirsty,

And could not decide which bowl to go to first.

The donkey eventually collapsed of hunger and thirst,

Not realizing that it had enough time to go to both bowls.

If only it had made a decision and taken action.
