Here’s a tip for today: The Rule of Universality.
Lets talk about it in simple terms: do only what would be acceptable if everyone did it.
Next time you have an ethical decision to make, start by asking yourself a question. What if everyone did it?
- What if everyone littered?
- What if everyone cheated on their taxes?
- What if everyone did not obey the speed limit?
- What if everyone was disrespectful?
Not only can this tip help our decision-making process, but it also reminds us that our values are important for keeping a civil society.
Stay tuned! We’ll have more decision-making tips in future posts.
