Most of us face certain dilemmas in our jobs between living according to our own principles of doing good and complying to the need to make a good living. Maybe you may want to do good with your work and benefit others, but you also have to live up to the needs of a company or organization that has to make money.

This talk, with co-authors Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, William Damon, and Howard Gardner, addresses such work-related dilemmas which they confronted in their book Good Work: When Excellence and Ethics Meet. They specifically look at two professions and the ethics associated with the work. They discuss journalists & journalistic ethics, and they talk about bioethics and geneticists. Through analyzing these professions they are able to come to some interesting conclusions about the interplay between doing good work and making money, and other dilemmas faced in the workplace. Maybe thinking about this can give you a better understanding about doing good work this year in your occupation.
