Making decisions takes energy. The more tired and hungry you are, the more likely you are to make the default easier choice. Makes sense right? Did you know that this is a good reason to delay your employees' meals and breaks? First, it's a good method of maximizing the amount of work you get out of them. But consider this: do you want your workers making decisions? No, that would be your job as the boss. Besides, they typically make bad decisions anyhow. Just keep them a little tired and hungry, and they won't have the energy to resist your decisions. It just makes things run smoother all around.
