Passion Party #410 - Integrity

Everyone believes that integrity is important
but how many people know what it means?
It has become a buzz word,
like "artisan pizza" or "organic food".
Or perhaps it is a new line of automobiles?

Integrity involves consistency
It is what you do when no one is looking,
when your words match your activity:
Consistency of actions
Consistency of values
Consistency of methods
Consistency of principles
Consistency of expectations
Consistency of outcomes

At the same time it is important to align your beliefs with your integrity.
Integrity does not reflect a certain moral code.
Using the above definition,
McDonalds has incredible integrity.
So does the Phillip Morris Corp.
One could be a bigot and still have integrity.

For me, having a strong moral compass
is more important than integrity.
