How Did I Live Today?
Thomas Shanks, S.J., Ph.D., Executive Director of the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics, recommends that everyone ask themselves these five questions at the end of the day.
Did I practice any virtues (e.g., integrity, honesty, compassion)?
Did I do more good than harm?
Did I treat others with dignity and respect?
Was I fair and just?
Was my community better because I was in it? Was I better because I was in my community?
