Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?
He was a lucky fellow because he was able to make an omelet without breaking eggs.
make an omelet without breaking eggs = achieve something without labor; take things in one’s stride
Thanks for your efforts.
Difficult to comment without knowing the full context, but it seems to me that the person described was being portrayed as a skilful manager. He is able to get things done without upsetting anyone. He can "make an omelet without breaking eggs" = He can push through the changes he wants and make people believe they're what they wanted all along.
