I would say that doing right means that you seek to not hurt other living beings intentionally (either mentally or physically) unless it is vital for your own survival or that of your peers. Doing wrong would mean that you hurt other living beings intentionally without it being vital for your own survival or that of your peers.

What is considered vital for survival is open for interpretation, though. For example, punishment of criminals could be considered as a necessary evil to keep society stable and thus maintain the survival of the species. Another example is eating meat, as vegetarians will argue that eating meat is not vital for our survival whereas many others disagree. Religions and ideologies exist precisely to align people's interpretation of what's right and wrong.
