What are the first (and maybe most important) things you do after you’ve read and considered your moral code.
Well that is a very good question. So firstly, the first thing you do is to make sure that all of your actions are consistent with your code. It may sound like a strange way to go about things, but if you’re an ethical person you would do all of the following.
If you have any time for a coffee or a snack, you can do the following.
If you don’t like coffee, you can always try the following.
The very act of reading an ethical code gives you a very clear picture of what your code is. Not only does it tell you what you can and can’t do, but also what you are expected to do and how it is to be done. Your code should also tell you what you are doing that is ethical, and if it doesn’t tell you that you should do something, it should give you some sort of example.
You are not expected to just act like the rest of the rest of the code. No, all of your code must be written down, signed, and put in a safe place. If you dont like your code, you can still change it. Even if it is the same thing as another code, you still have to abide by it. Your code cannot be amended simply by signing a new document.
In the end, when you put the words code and ethics together, you get a framework that says to you in one sentence, this is what I would do if I were to be asked to do it, and I am going to follow this code. But you also have to think of what your code should say, and what it should not say. The code has to be clear so you know what goes in and what goes out.
This is a simple, but crucial question.
You cannot just read the Code of Ethics and simply ignore it. The Code of Ethics is a big book. It’s like the Constitution of the United States, or the Declaration of Independence. It has to be read, understood, and followed. At a certain point, you have to know what you’re about to do as well.
