FROM THE PULPIT: A Socratic exercise on work ethic

Published: Friday, March 14, 2014 at 07:16 PM.

The philosopher Socrates taught his students by asking questions, which helped pupils find answers for certain issues.

Here is an exercise using his method. Answer each question before moving on to the next.

Think of a project someone asked you to accomplish for them.

•How did you react when asked to do the project?

•While working on the project, to what degree did you give it your best effort?

•When the project was completed, what level of satisfaction did you have? Why?

•As you delivered the product to the person who requested it, what was your level of expected acceptance of the project?
