The recent Tiger Woods story is a reminder of a simple pointer:
Would I do what I am doing if everyone knew about it? What would I do differently if everyone would know it?
In our digital and highly connected age, it is very possible that everyone will know, and that gives an added reality to the question.
Here is another take on those questions: When I am alone, do I behave as I would if others were here? How would it be to act as if others were here? When I am with others, do I feel and act as free as I do when I am alone? How would it be to feel and act with the freedom that is here when I am alone?
– tiger woods, reminder of a very simple guideline
– do whatever I am doing as if everyone would see and know it
– helps with integrity (+ is very possible it will be public in our digital and highly connected age)
