Every night I go over what I did in the day, in ethical or moral terms.
Have I treated people properly? Did I tell the truth?

— Jeanne Moreau

Greetings, Inspired Travelers!

The beginning and the ending of each day set our intentions and give us time to assess our actions and our choices. In an age where ethics issues — and their betrayals — are in the news daily, it is critical for leaders to regularly reflect upon those choices.

How would your staff, your customers and your business partners rate your ethics? Would your vendors recommend you as a person who is honest and lives with integrity, even when the decisions are painful? These are not just questions for those in MBA programs; they are questions that deserve thoughtful answers from everyone in a leadership position.

When we choose the easy way or the solution that only benefits ourselves or our companies, what damage are we doing to others?

We are still in the first quarter of the new year. Many resolutions have gone by the wayside already. How about a new resolution? To live and act ethically; to consider those we serve in each decision, and to review at the end of the day each choice we made and, as we do so, let us ask:

Did I treat everyone properly?

This practice could change your life as well as the lives of those you serve. In a good way.

Be Magnificent! Have an Inspirational Day!
