Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “The time is always right to do what is right.” I’m a firm believer that most people would agree with that statement.
The challenging part is knowing, “what is right?”
I’m not here to tell others how to live their lives or decipher right from wrong, but instead I will share how my moral compass supports my decision-making.
I have always been a curious person, and I mean very curious! I’ve always been fascinated with art, architecture, design, music and most of all, people. Exceptional people such as Steve Jobs, Maya Angelou, Gandhi and Einstein have always intrigued me. I’m fascinated by what makes them tick, drives their behaviour, makes them dream big, and needs to be achieved to make them feel fulfilled?
I do my best to observe, listen, read and absorb as the ideas that will make the biggest impact, with minimal effort, in my life.
Doing, “what is right” is not always easy, nor popular but is always fulfilling when rooted in good intent! Over the past four and a half years into our restart at Roma Moulding, doing “what is right” has always been top of mind. Our Roma 10 Family Core Values are our guiding principals to ensure we remain focused and vigilant on doing “what is right.”
Many people would agree with me that people typically want to do “what is right!” However, not as many would agree that businesses, fuelled by people, want to do the same.
Contrary to popular belief, in my research I’ve come across many businesses that always strive to do what is right. Recently, I found a great example of a company who did just that and actions’ actually made me cry!
I hope this inspires you as it has inspired me to continue to do “what is right!”
I’d love to hear how your company or client rewards ethical behaviour…
