The best piece of advice I've gotten is that short-term gains lead to long-term pains. I've always strived to do the right thing in my work life and in my personal life, even if it is more difficult/time-consuming to do so. In the long run, it is always better to invest your time by doing what is right and ethical instead of taking shortcuts.
