For Students -- Doing the Right Thing

Posted Oct 21 2008 12:51am
A curious undergraduate asks below,

Dear Wise elders,

In trying to decide on a career path, I am always struggling with the question of "doing the right thing".

As people in leadership positions, which I think many of the readers here are.... What does it mean to be doing the right thing for your profession/industry/work? I know it's a big question... any thoughts or guidance is greatly appreciated.

I assume the question is not about what specific profession to enter. This is more a question about what ethical, moral, or leadership decisions you make in your professional life. I think the answer is pretty simple: Don't do anything you wouldn't want to explain to your mother. Or to put it more positively, do the things that would make your mother proud.

I am not being facetious or simplistic.
