this question has been in my mind for all of the time. When it was asked to me, i was speechless like i was thinking eagerly on what should i answer! But after that conservation, i was enlightened of what the question is all about. Now, i want you to internalize my question and give me your own perception with my question.

I would do things the right way. Doing things the easy way may not be the right way all the time. With this, there might be some complications in the future. Let's take for example the three little pigs. 2 pigs chose the easy way of making a house but it proved to be ineffective. The third pig has chosen the right way by building a house made of concrete.

I prefer to do what is right. Easy.. easy.. easy.. nothing's special about easy. You have to reach out and go out of your own way and do what is right. Doing things that are easy.. doesn't give you that same fulfilling feeling when you do something right. Just giving a dime to a beggar gives that healing wind that tingles your body and kind of makes me look at the sky and say "Beautiful day". Do what is right.. always and you'll be happy ;)

Well, easy doesnt mean wrong at all. There are some situation that easy means good and right means better. Thanks for your response.

Definitely, what is right. It may not be easy but if it's the right thing to do then that's the best. Most of the time the right thing is not easy because someone down there (the enemy of the good) will always find a way to block your way to the right path. As they say, when the going gets tough, the tough gets going.

Do you think doing the right thing than the easy thing is applicable all the time?

It may not be but I'd rather be right than sorry later on.

In most situations I would always want to do what I felt was right more than what was easy. For conscience reasons why lie, or try to hind something that you know is wrong just to please someone? Yes, it might be easier to lie, and cover up for someone or something but how will that make you feel in the end?

Hi lockheart, My answer is always the right thing. Because it is easy,I can not do a wrong thing. Same way because it is hard I can not neglect a right thing. In fact it is always hard to be in the right side. If I say junk foods are not the right food,you will find it hard to stop it. If I say vegetarian is the healthy food,you will find it hard. So hard or easy we should do the right things. Happy mylotting

I would do what is right…it may be difficult for the moment, the choices may not be easy to make. But I do know that time moves on but what stays with me is my conscience…I would be forever answerable to it. What seems difficult or indispensable today, would lose its importance tomorrow so I would not take the easy way to achieve anything at the cost of it being immoral or harmful to somebody else.

I am into making for what is right even if it is hard thing to do. At least your conscience is clear and you don't step on others shoe. You can be proud of yourself of what you have done, your family will be proud of you, and especially God will be happy.

I always do what is right. But then there are some things that I prefer doing things that is easy for me to wrok out things. Example in a relationship, I prefer doing things that for me it is the easiest way for me to forget everything after all the hurtful things happened to my life. After all, I believed that whatever things I am making is right. Just follow your heart says and make your mind decide.

Most of the time, the right thing is so difficult to do. So that gives me the challenge to work on it and make sure that I won't go for the easy one(which is usually a wrong thing) and suffer the consequences later on. I'd prefer to do the right thing. After all, if I'd keep on doing what is right, it would be easier for me to do it as time passes by since I'd be used to it already.

is it meaningful to do what is easy but that is not right? if one thing is right and the other is easy but wrong, i do the right. if one thing is right and easy and the other is right and hard, i do the right and easy thing.

for some, it's always the easy thing they would choose. but with this question, whatever you choose will only reflects what kind of person you are. but for me, if you do the right thing you would never go wrong. there will be obstacles most likely that you will have to face, for in our society today, if you do the right thing most likely you would end up having enemies. but despite all this, just consider the happiness that you would feel if you did right and the clean conscience would lead to a more relaxing and stressful you.

as much as i want to say what is easy, i am going to go for what is right. what is right may not always be easy but atleast you know you have done what you should have done and maybe it made things a little easier. on the long road, it will make things easier. it may not be easy when you do it but it will be worth it when you least expect it.

What is right should always be chosen over what is easy. The right choice may be the most difficult of all, but it is the best and most preferable. Ease and laziness should not overcome what is right and just.

your right, laziness is the one that take us to do what is easy than what is right. those lazy people would just tend to do easy things than right things because they don't want to get fatigue and sweat.

i would prefer to do what is right rather than what is easy to do. I would rather sacrifice to do thing in a hard way as long as it is right thing to do than doing the easier one which anyone can be affected or there will be a consequences will happened after that easy way. It is fulfilling to do something what is right.

Depending on the situation actually. If we’re talking about problems, of course it’s better to do the right thing. But I guess it actually coordinates along the way, you have to do the right thing in an easier way it could possibly be.. hehehe.. I’m confused now..

We are all tempted to choose easy, but doing what is right is far more satisfying when all is said and done

What is right, if the easy part is the bad part I probably would not be able to live with the guilt.

Everyone does this way becoz easy way comes naturally. If it is right then why not.Then one has to be convinced that it is right/correct.
