Fairness is giving all people the treatment they earn and deserve. It doesn’t mean treating everyone alike. That’s unfair, because everyone doesn’t earn the same treatment.
Love this one. It’s the start of a section of the book called “A Leader Is Fair.” And it’s very true. I know it’s true in parenting. Kids always want to be treated the same way as their brother, sister, or friends. But sometimes they don’t earn the same treatment. It also applies quite often to us grown-ups, too.
If you don’t know what this post/series is about, see the John Wooden tag and specifically the first quote I posted.
