Doing the Right Thing

Cultivating Your Moral Intelligence

About The Book

Life is filled with moral dilemmas. And in this ever changing world, doing the right thing can be an increasingly complex endeavor. Now psychologist Aaron Hass leads you on a voyage of discovery that enables you to better deal with the dilemmas of everyday life.
At one time or another we have all thought, "I know what I should do, but I can't do it." By strengthening your moral self, you can. Dr. Hass' simple yet profound message is that inside, you know what's right. Freeing yourself from the fears, insecurities, and excuses that lie at the heart of your indiscretions will start you on your path to inner peace, dignity, and a renewed excitement for living. You will discover new ways of looking at:
  • Guilt -- when it can be good
  • Emotions -- how they can get in the way of doing what's right
  • Fairness -- life may not be fair, but you can be
  • Giving -- why keeping a scorecard makes you a moral loser

Dr. Hass brings these concepts and others into focus -- and ties them together with compassion and love. Warmly human, full of wisdom and depth of spirit, this is a book about approaching your relationships with greater empathy and kindness, and teaching your children to do likewise. With Doing The Right Thing, you will release your inherent goodness and heroic potential -- in times of crisis as well as in the smaller moments that make up the moral sum of your days.
