Can you act differently in your business and personal lives?

A great speaker, I believe either Jim Rohn or Brian Tracy once said that you cannot conduct yourself one way in business, and another way in your personal life.  If you cheat on your spouse, you will cheat your business partners or clients; If you don’t tell the shareholders every piece of pertinent information, you won’t hesitate to withhold important information from your spouse or a close friend.

Today, Seth Godin talks about people who justify acting a certain way by saying “It’s just business”

Anyone who is willing to lie to you, cheat you or treat you with disrespect because it’s just business is doing more damage to herself than to you.

Work takes too much time and too much emotion for it to be just work. As far as I’m concerned, I don’t want to spend time or money with anyone who has this particular attitude disfunction.

Well said, Seth
