What does “Integrity and Ethics mean? Well according to Dictionary.com, it means…
I often think about this during the day as I work online and come across situations where I have to make a decision about whether what I am asked to do is honest or does it go against my values.
There are so many different cultures and perceptions of right and wrong in real life and working online. It comes down to doing what you believe to be right and what will allow you to sleep at night once you have made that decision “to do or not to do.”
We are told everyday online that we need to build relationships and earn the KLT (Know, Like and Trust) factor in order to succeed. But we have also been told, “The Nice Guy Finishes Last.”
KLT is very important and you have to earn it.
The nice guy/girl might finish last but it takes only a little longer to achieve the goals set for himself or herself versus someone else who thinks nothing about deceiving people, stretching the truth and outright lying to get what he or she wants in a hurry to build wealth and make a name for themselves.
What about you? Do you “Really” think about whether you are doing right or wrong in making a decision? Do you feel confident after you have made your decision that you will be able to hold your head as high as you used to and be able to sleep at night with a free and clear conscious?
“There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right.” ― Martin Luther King Jr.
Do you have a limit that you will go beyond to succeed?
This post is just something I’ve been thinking about for a while since I’ve been in this industry of writing and marketing online.
I would love to hear your thoughts on “Integrity and Ethics.”
