Convenience is sometimes taken for granted. We flick a switch and we have light, we adjust the thermostat and we have climate control, and when we want to talk to someone across town or across the country we simply use a little device that is probably already in our hand.
It may be convenient to hire the first job applicant, to pick the lowest priced proposal, or do something for someone who (you expect) can do something for you. It may be convenient to label the email as urgent, become unavailable when a decision is needed, or simply slow down to prolong the length of the job if you’re being paid by the hour. None of that makes it right.
What is right may not always be the most convenient, it may not always garnish the most support, or it may not always seem like the most attractive.
Doing what is right (or convenient) shows everyone who you are.
