Doing the Right Thing …

… is pretty much impossible.

The Right Thing involves too many variables, too many definitions, too many opinions. It is impossible to do a litmus test on, and impossible to quantify. Sadly, it’s what many mangers ask of their employees.

But the Right Thing is a worthy goal, just misguided.

Maybe there is a better way to look for it, relate to it, or ask for it.

Do better than yesterday.

Produce something incredible.

Be the best or the most knowledgeable about something specific.

Pull somebody up.

Be the one people turn to.

Be the teacher.

Do the unexpected and wonderful thing.

Be the one who gives without expectation or need to receive. That’s the “Right Thing.”
