A week ago I posted a thought I had about being Realistic or not. Can we honestly be realistic towards someone without thinking about what we will earn economically from them. I received many replies from my readers asking me to be more specific about this issue. The first thought that came to my mind was the example of a school teacher whose job is to educate children, to develop their characters, beliefs, morals. If they lose interest in what they do, they will no longer care about the children. The same is true for a doctor with his patient, a manager with his colleagues.
We are all living in a period of a great economic crisis. This has resulted to lower wages. However this mustn’t stop us from doing our job properly. Otherwise we will create a society with no morals and beliefs. Is it realistic, heroic or just Utopian?
