Everyday Moments of Truth (Ethics Self Assessment)

By Michele Eby September 13, 2017

Most of us know the difference between right and wrong. We know the difference between telling the truth and telling a lie. We can explain why honesty and integrity are important.

Most of us also know how easy it is to justify our actions:

  • “It’s such a small thing, what’s the big deal?”
  • “No one will know.”
  • “Everyone else does it.”

Our character is built one decision at a time. The challenge is to cut through the noise, halt the rationalizations, and consider the actual choices we face.
