“This is like shooting fish in a barrel.”
I have never shot fish in a barrel, but I am pretty sure it is not actually that easy. These fish are not sitting still. They are swimming around and bouncing all over the place. Especially when they get the scent of another dead fish in their water. How much will they be bouncing around then?
How about your teammate you just asked to take care of some odds and ends? It seems like it is going to take more than you expected. They are reasonable people. They are the expert in their field. That is why you went to them for help.
Maybe it is not as easy as flipping a switch.
Who is helping you? Are you doing everything they need to help them help you? Are you actual weighing the cost of your actions?
