Ethics in business today suck. Entrepreneurs are too focused on profit as the ultimate goal.
Business Is a Game
In baseball, a power hitter is often measured by how many homeruns he hits. As fans, we idolize and adore good hitters.
But, hitting homeruns isn’t his ultimate goal.
It’s a means to an end. The end is winning games… and winning enough games to be called a champion.
Often times, his legacy depends on whether or not he won a championship… regardless of how many homeruns he hits.
And, if he cheats to win, his legacy will be forever tainted… regardless of how many homeruns he hits.
