Cowboy Ethics

May 21, 2015

I’m taking a professional ethics class right now that referred us to a website on Cowboy ethics:  cowboyethics.org

Here’s an overview of what the site says:

The iconic cowboy represents the best of America — the courage, optimism and plain hard work. Cowboys are heroic not just because they do a dangerous job, but also because they stand for something — the simple, basic values that lie at the heart of the cowboy way.  These values are summarized in the Code of the West, below.

Code of the West

1) Live each day with courage.
2) Take pride in your work.
3) Always finish what you start.
4) Do what has to be done.
5) Be tough, but fair.
6) When you make a promise, keep it.
7) Ride for the brand.
8) Talk less and say more.
9) Remember that some things aren’t for sale.
10) Know where to draw the line.

So you want to be a Cowboy?  I do!
