Do the right thing right?!

When I was in College, I learnt two things:
  1. Do the right thing
  2. Do the thing right

The first one is to do the correct thing. That means the thing(s) with direction is right. The second is to do a thing (may or may not be directionally right) correctly. I combined these two into a single one: Do the right thing right.

It is very difficult to know if one thing is directionally correct or not. It is even harder to do a thing correctly.

An example: I got an offer from Initial-P Company. The offer seems to be good, salary increment, bigger company platform, etc. However, my current employer really would like me to stay. Their retention offer includes salary increment, title upgrade, etc. My feeling is tend to leave. However, the temptation is on the title upgrade.

Back to the topic, which one is the right thing? Leave or Stay?! Can I do the thing right?

May God bless me on the way. I really have no idea on how to choose.
