My Life at Work

I have said it before but it bears repeating that my viewpoint and work place habits need to come more in line with the Dhamma.

This weekend we, my business partner and I, went to take a look at a company were interested in purchasing. We have had dealing with them in the past and have even orchard a few of their products in the past in order to use them to make our own derivatives. Suffice it to say that there was one transaction which did not go as planned and there were issues which led to me being called out by one of the parties with whom we are now negotiating. Although I won’t get into the details this experience was both internally uncomfortable and a real wake up call.

Why did I believe it was acceptable to treat other people, even if they are the “competition,” in a way I would never consider reading anyone else? How could I so easily forget the Dhamma in the pursuit of gain? As painful as the experience of meeting peopl you have taken advantage of it is good medicine to have apologized face to face.

May I always put the Dhamma before all else and never forget my precepts and practice.
