"Live one day at a time emphasizing ethics rather than rules."
This reminds me of things relating to the spirit of the law versus letter of the law. "I followed the rules" is not the same as being able to say "I did what was right."
We don't hear much about ethics in business until we come across cases where a lack of ethics can no longer be ignored. Is it enough that business follow established rules or should management and employees be encouraged to apply some ethics test to all they do?
