What Happens When We Die?Posted: October 26, 2013
You may be asking yourself, how does the afterlife fit into a blog on business and leadership. However, it could be one of the most important questions to ask yourself in a business situation because it provides a compass for your actions and decisions. When your standing at the pearly gates, you can rest assured that you won’t be asked how much money you made for your company in the first quarter of 2013. Even if you don’t believe in judgment after death, how do you want people to remember you? Do you think anyone will give a eulogy related to your business’s profit margins or do you think instead they’ll talk about your character and how you did or did not help others?
If you ever find yourself saying, “You need to think about the business” to justify a decision that you would otherwise consider unethical or not undertake in your personal life, you might want to stop and rethink your decision.
