A nice post on doing what is (ethically) right first rather than doing what is good for your ‘career’.
We’re pretty good, most of us, at operating decently in our personal lives – stopping at red lights, not stealing the neighbour’s chooks, beating up puppies (or anyone most of the time). In our personal lives we’re pretty conscious. But our working lives are different.
Our working selves look away, tolerate injustice, further the interests of the mega-ruthless and undermine both common good and common decency to a degree that would make us ashamed were it not for a single concept. Professionalism.
