To: Econ 221 Subject: A few ideas and principles to keep in mind Date: 28 January 2008 Tell the truth. Don’t lie, cheat or steal, or tolerate it – not ever, not even on little things. Be ethical and moral. Never indulge in gossip or rumor. Hold yourself to the highest standards. Do your best, always. You owe it to yourself and others to give your every responsibility your very best effort; but don’t stop there – think continuous process improvement. How can it be improved next time? What lessons can be learned? Do they have applications elsewhere? Be gracious, always. Manners, courtesy and politeness count for a lot, much more than some people think. Don’t blame, accuse, point fingers, or act ugly or mean. Don’t rant or flame. Don’t say anything about someone that you would not say to their face. Be mindful of your words and careful of what you put in writing. A very wise man once said, “Brag softly and weep gently.” Treat others with respect. Practice the Golden Rule – do unto others as you would have others do unto you. Also remember the corollary – never ask someone to do something you would not do yourself. It has something to do with integrity. Be objective, and check your facts. “Trust but verify.”
