Business Ethics

"I am absolutely convinced that no wealth in the world can help humanity forward, even in the hands of the most devoted worker in this cause. The example of great and pure characters is the only thing that can product fine ideas and noble deeds. Money only appeals to selfishness and always tempts its owners irresistibly to abuse it.

Can anyone imagine Moses, Jesus , or Gandhi armed with them money-bags of Carnegie?"
(Einstein, 1949)

I just handed in my 1st business ethics assignment, and to my surprise, this subject is very philosophical, which is something I like, or to say I have found something that really interests me, although sometimes it bores me.. With the searches over the Internet, looking through books, I came over this quote by Albert Einstein.

Everything happens for a reason, doesn't it? I was suppose to be choosing International Law but instead the timetable clashed and therefore I chose business ethics, and surprisingly, my Law lecturer from year 1 was commencing the class. The topics discussed by her are so philosophical and it does take someone who reads and who has experienced or someone wanting and allowing the knowledge of philosophy to flow in. Crazy class, one of the mind blasting classes I've come acrossed.


Judging someone too quickly without having to understand what is the person's intention.

What I mean by the statement above is that, sometimes you will tend to judge everyone by the cover. Eventhough you know the person well, you have already implanted the judgement of that person in you, no matter what situation comes across, you will already have the judgement in you.

Dangerously, if you judge someone too quickly.

That judgement you may have might produce an anti trust for you. In which it is dangerously because every moment you have already put the person on guard. Sometimes, you might unintentionally hurt the person. Hope this person you find is not your love ones. Because dangerously, you might have hurt his or her feelings.


Signing off, damn it's a Friday night and I'm at home.
This is so not productive, I find that is. ^^

Good day people, and have a great weekend ahead!
