Integrity questions

When you aren’t sure if you’re keeping you integrity, ask yourself these questions:

  1. What do I know to do?
  2. What am I saying I will do?
  3. What do others expect me to do, even though I haven’t said I will do it?
  4. What do I have to do to have my work complete?
  5. What do I have to do so that it’s done the way it has to be done to be considered complete?

  • The questions above are all great. I think the value happens in the asking not just in the answering. Once you acknowledge that something must be done you’re taking on the responsibility to do it. It is in not acknowledging a need that we fall down.

    So often you hear, “I don’t know what to do.” I say it, you say it, they say it.

    For myself and I assume I’m not alone, it’s not so much not knowing what’s right but finding the will to do it.
    If you look at the hard questions I think most would agree that it’s not the KNOWING it’s the DOING which is really the hard part.

    But obviously if you get to the point of asking the above questions you have already taken up the gauntlet and are moving with a will to do what’s needed.

  • Shelly, #3 and #5 are the ones that really hit home for me right now in my life….

  • i agree, number 3 and 5 are for me the most important and difficult to understand and achieve. thanks for sharing, it’s a great post: short, simple, but with a lot of meaning and it makes you think. i liked it so much! keep doing it like this!
