DO IT FOR THE WRONG REASON

Isn’t it better to do something good for the wrong reason than not at all?

For example, practicing something good like virtue, to be more ‘effective’, rather than to build stronger character, which some might say is practicing virtue for the wrong reason.

Our minds can go many different directions on this question.

One thought is ‘yes, I agree, as long as the person realizes there’s a professional reason AND a personal reason to practice virtue and one impacts the other.’

What do you think?
