I have a golden rule for policy making
Solve for the 95%, not for the 5%
Look around you.
Most rules and policies are drafted to curb the 5% that deviate. Not to acknowledge the 95% that adhere.
No car blinds for the 5% rapists
Punch cards for the 5% free loaders
25 yrs drinking limits for the 5% that can’t control
Daily reviews for the 5% that can’t self manage
Bell curve for the 5% that don’t fit in
And it’s obvious why that’s the case
It’s the 5% that create the most chaos
They make the most noise
They destroy the most
They seek the most attention
They get the most attention
The 5% will make themselves visible come what may. The hard work then is to make the 95% visible.
Don’t let the 5% takeover
