$1.67 for a plan

“During World War I, while inspecting a certain area, Gen John J. Pershing found a project that was not going well, even thought the second Lieutenant in charge seemed to have a pretty good plan. General Pershing asked the lieutenant how much pay he received. On hearing the lieutenant’s reply of ‘$141.67 per month, Sir,’ General Pershing said: ‘Just remember that you get $1.67 per month for making your plan and issuing the order, and $140.00 for seeing that it is carried out.'”
