Have you ever heard this before? Recently I heard someone ask, “Is it still cheating if you don’t get caught?” and I just stood there in disbelief. What does getting caught or not getting caught have to do with whether or not you cheated? By this reasoning, then it’s not a lie unless someone catches you lying. Cheating is cheating and lying is lying. All too often I see business people, athletes, and other individuals
The Accountability Blog
After reading the owner of the Houston Astros recent response that he does not believe he should be held accountable for the cheating that his team was found to have participated in, I thought an article was required. At first, I thought that I would just create a list of all of the times that a leader is not accountable. The only problem with that is that the article would end at that point.
In an interview this past week Lance Armstrong said if he had a chance to do things over, he’d probably dope again if he was racing at a time when cheating “was completely and totally pervasive.” In other words, if someone else is cheating he would cheat also. So cheating is okay.
