The way we do things has an effect on the world. Ethical decision-making is important to consider for it helps us make the right decisions and avoid doing wrong.
What is Ethics?
Ethics is a system of moral principles that govern human conduct. It aims to help people make moral decisions by considering the impact of their actions on themselves and others.
It is important to think about ethics because it explicitly tells us what we should and should not do, as well as which values we should live by.
Importance of ethical decision making:
On a daily basis, we make decisions that will have an impact on other people’s lives. To make sure that these decisions are not harmful to those who will be affected by our actions, making ethical decisions is essential. It’s important to put yourself in the shoes of those who will be affected by your decision and to understand what outcome can result from it. With this in mind, you can learn how to work better, and faster.
Thus, Ethical decision-making helps us make moral decisions and avoid doing wrong so that we can help those around us with their needs as well as our own.
Make sure you have time for friends – they are the most important support network you have.
The fatal metaphor of progress, which means leaving things behind us, has utterly obscured the real idea of growth, which means leaving things inside us.
