Thanks for your comment! Yes, I wouldn’t be surprised at all if Obama did that in order to make fewer decisions. I think a number of people in high-pressure positions do things like that to make their lives a bit easier.
I think all of us can benefit from doing the same thing, not only heads of government and CEOs etc.
For instance, when I went to school in England for a bit as a teenager, I actually rather like having to wear a school uniform (we don’t have that in Germany) because I didn’t have to pick a wardrobe each day.
