At the end of the day after sawing wood Hamish noticed he had a splinter in the palm of his hand. Although very tired he resolved to remove it before retiring to bed.
Verily, with the use of a pin Hamish removed the splinter, and feeling no pain he went to bed.
The next Morn Hamish discovered that he still had a splinter in the palm of his hand. At first he was vexed but then realised that it was not the same splinter, but a much smaller one. It was only after removing the larger that he became aware of the smaller.
In a similar way the removal of one problem often does not lead to satisfaction but just to the awareness of other problems.
