Optimize Decision Making for an Ethical Practice
For me, writing about ethics feels a bit arrogant or grandiose. I am not a scholar of ethics, and topics such as choosing the right career path or being an ethical architect seem more appropriate for discussions among friends. While, at their best, politics is an important and noble endeavor, it is not the intent of this article to decide for you how to act. Instead, I will attempt to explain how, when I'm at my best, I decide which action to take in a given situation, and some mistakes I’ve made along the way.
