What If Everyone Did It?

Here’s a tip for Tuesday: The Rule of Universality.

Lets talk about it in simple terms: do only what would be acceptable if everyone did it.

Next time you have an ethical decision to make, start by asking yourself a question. What if everyone did it?

  • What if everyone littered?
  • What if everyone cheated on their taxes?
  • What if everyone did not obey the speed limit?
  • What if everyone was disrespectful?

Not only can this tip help our decision-making process, but it also reminds us that our values are important for keeping a civil society.

Stay tuned! We’ll have more decision-making tips in future posts.
