True Numbers

80 /2o

It is not a law. It is not a philosophy. It is not anything but a rule of thumb that is true.

The 80/20 rule says that roughly 80% of the problem can be solved with 20% of the effort that it would take to solve the whole problem.

Is it coming through.

"Keep It Short and Simple"

OK, not with me yet are you?

You know 20 percent of you stock takes up 80 percent of your warehouse space and that 80 percent of your stock comes from 20 percent of your suppliers. Also 80 percent of your sales will come from 20 percent of your sales staff. 20 percent of your staff will cause 80 percent of your problems, but another 20 percent of your staff will provide 80 percent of your production. It works both ways.

After you stop thinking about this and try applying it you will know. It can make a big pile small in a hurry. You will feel good about your accomplishment and start on the next 20.

Now, I will get to why I felt the need to tell you to do something some of you already know.

Thankfully Dash, we don't have to replace 89% of Congress. Only 20% are 80% of the problem and that we can do. But it is a wonderful dream.

Now we have to decide how this rule applies to stupid people. Is it only the 20% that are the problem or the 80%?

Numbers and Lies

We all are in search of numbers to justify our decision. Where do you get your numbers? Know that they will lie to you. Any decision you wish for can be justified by selecting the lie you swallow. We justify we what we want by believing a lie. We take what we want through this process. If you need the numbers to know this to be true. You are part of the problem. You have to stop believing what is being sold. You are buying something that comes with consequence's. If you havent seen it, you have turned your back on it. I would like the numbers to say we have seen. I don't believe that true. The majority seem to be full of the lie. It justifies your need. Please take no offence. If you have, turn your back. These words needed no numbers to support the truth.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

The choice is yours to make on your own.

Turn your back with your numbers.

Believe the truth.
