: So has anyone heard this one? "It's like trying to herd cats through a waterfall" which is to say this is very difficult to almost impossible.

I haven't heard that one, but there are several phrases like it, such as "to mind mice at a crossroads", which is traditional in Ireland (and probably quite a few other places as well) (VSD)
