Scenario 1: Truck marked “Law Enforcement” towing a trailer with no working brake lights. Stops in front of me and I almost rear-end him.
Scenario 2: Van marked “Police” races past me and runs a full red light while I stop. This was a “work detail” van – roadside trash collection with prison labor. No burglary in progress. No crime to prevent. Just a red light to run.
For whom are rules, laws and processes created?
Are they only created for those of us who are ruled, governed, managed or directed?
Or, are they created for all of us?
Think of this the next time you in management create a rule, process, directive, mandate, etc. Are you to be subjected to this same set of policies? Are you part of the picture? Or, are you just a glorious ruling body, passing down dictates that you don’t have to follow and won’t follow?
Never trust a disembodied ruler. Never trust someone who pours medicine down your throat while they keep their own teeth clinched behind tight, pursed lips.
