I always mock my younger colleague who tweets more than she talks, blogs more than she writes, facebooks more than she meets people and posts more instagrams than she has ever taken pictures!
But when I was forwarded a whatsapp message from a dear friend of mine, I actually paused.. It was one of Ghandi’s famous quotes that were completely forgotten and revived through the technological frenzy we obviously are all getting caught up in, whether we like it or not.
And Ghandi’s words still stand true…And his words are so timely…
There are 7 things that can destroy a human being:
1- Politics without principles
2- Pleasure without a conscience
3- Wealth without work
4- Knowledge without virtue
5- Science without humanity
6- Commerce without ethics
7- Religion without piety
I dedicate the 6th sin to a person who, just recently, said to me: do not take it personal, it is business.
Well, in my humble opinion, business is part of our life and a reflection of who we are and what we stand for, if one lacks ethics in business one lacks ethics, it is simple and very personal.
Which of the 7 sins would you like to dedicate and to whom? Share your thoughts with me on email@example.com
