    Doing the right things can take you far in this world. Doing things right will not. I still choose the latter.

    Doing the right things are in accordance with the common good. Doing things right is what you think is right that why you do it. I believe to do the right things is better compare to other.

    Doing things right to me focuses more on task accomplishment, such as writing a good hub, doing the dishes, or preparing a meal.

    Doing the right things signals in my head moral questions, like how should you treat your fellow human beings in an individual and societal level?

    But they could definitely be intertwined together.

    Here are my answers to your query.

    1. If I find myself in a situation where I see that someone is not doing it right then I will step in and show the person how to do the thing in a right way. There is always the right method of doing thing so to avoid unnecessary complication.

    2. It is always best to do the right thing from the start if you know how. Sometimes we may end up in the first situation as correcting ourselves to do the things in a right way.

    Hope my answers do not confuse you further.

    Yes very confusing, "Doing Things Right or Doing the Right Things ??" has two different meanings and both are subjective, as one persons right can be another persons wrong all too often.

    The above is answered by Sooner28, I think but...

    "What's your take on it? Would you find out the right path or would you make your path right?" this is another question, and again it is subjective.

    Would you find out the right path, is about finding something that is already there and would you make your path right is about changing that which already exists.

    It is really about the perception of what is right, which ultimately is something only you can decide because it is subjective.

    Operationally, doing the right thing is good prioritization of usage of your most precious limited resource, your time. Doing things right is efficient and effective execution of the plan. The world being what it is, both are necessary if you want to get anywhere.

    I guess both.As long as both lead to a positive result, I would choose both.

    Well.. Champion you are if you manage to score 100% on both ways all the time big_smile!

    Probably a question of perception, I guess! Doing the right thing and that it turns out indeed to be so, doesn't mean that people will see it that way. Same when you do things right. I also would say that if you do some things wrong with the intend to do the right thing ... well that's equal to doing the wrong thing, because the resonance of your act is not insync with your intention .. kind of having a situation here.. big_smile
    Both are fragile and unavoidably connected!
    Depending of the situation though, it can also be pretty ... twisted & big_smile

    Doing the right things take precedence over doing things right. Doing things right is relative to one's own perception and definition of right.

    Find the right path because I can hardly make my path right as I do not even know it. After I have found the right path, I must do right to remain on it. Vola!
