"One of the dumbest excuses for screwing up is 'everyone else does it, it is industry standard,'" says Robert Sutton in his book Good Boss, Bad Boss. "This is exactly the excuse offered by many bankers and mortgage brokers who gave loans to people for houses they couldn't afford … even though many now say they knew it was wrong at the time." 

Sutton says, "My mother taught me to think for myself. Don't mindlessly compare yourself to others ... the people you imitate might be complete dolts."
