Don’t Compromise on Core Values
If you forget the rest of this article, remember this: don’t change your ethical stance for a compromise. If you lose a little time or money during a deal, you might regret momentarily, but if you ignore your ethics, you will kick yourself for a lifetime. Don’t know where to draw the line? If the deal makes you feel uneasy, then listen to your inner voice. I do an intuition check before proceeding on any compromise, and if I can’t articulate on why something “feels wrong,” I talk to a mentor, counselor, or good friend. They almost always verify what my gut tells me: that compromises aren’t worth bending my fundamental values.
