If you’re into boating you’re well aware of the importance of having charts onboard and how they help to keep your bearings. But because you’re in charge, the final destination is up to you.
It’s the same in life and business. You have to understand the laws of the country and the workings of economics; know moral rules and be aware of social conventions; grasp the psychology of people; read or listen to the word of god, if you’re religious. But since you have free will, the choice which way to follow and to do good or bad is only yours.
You chart the course.
