A layman like me would define ethics as the morals, values and principles to do what is right. Most professionals like doctors, teachers, pilots etc have their own work ethic principles that guide them while pursing their duties and these are normally internationally recognized but what about what we do during our free time, does what we do or say in our free time influence our personal behavior?
There was this beautiful young lady who was lucky to host a show in one of our media houses, everything was going on well and she had a big fun base but she and her friends went to have fun in one of the beaches and she drunk herself silly that even videos of her acting indecent leaked to the various social Medias and consequently she was sacked. I later got to understand that given the credibility of that media house, they could not spare anyone who can tint their reputation.
I was recently telling someone that what you do or say now can consequently cost your future ambitions because societies expect us to do or behave in a certain way and if you happen to do contrary then don’t get surprised when suddenly people rise up and demand your immediate resignation especially when in position of authority.
Ethics is a strong variable that any developmental minded person should possess and if at all it crosses my mind that a person X am probably dealing with falls short of that then you are dead to me no matter what you are or what you are worth.
