How many points do you need between two balanced hands to give yourself a reasonable shot at making 3NT? If you said 25 then you’ve been taught well. Just remember, though, that you’ll sometimes go down with 25 and you’ll sometimes make 9 tricks with fewer than 25. You can’t bid them all and you’re going to wish you’d bid some you didn’t but that’s life in the bridge world. Don’t go messing around with the fundamentals because of one lucky or unlucky hand!
