Chef, Achilles, and the Tortoise

Ideally, a single run of the Chef Client should always bring the system into the fully expected state – not just half-way. But if it doesn’t work out, trying again should continue to bring the system closer to correct.

Imagine that every run of Chef Client does a half of the remaining work. Then the whole work will be done in an infinite amount of time.
