integrity

— noun

adherence to moral and ethical principles; soundness of moral character; honesty

the state of being whole, entire, or undiminished: to preserve the integrity of the empire.

a sound, unimpaired, or perfect condition: the integrity of a ship’s hull

What does integrity mean in your world and the better question is, do you have it? What does integrity look like in your world?

Integrity does not mean you’re better than the next bloke. It means you are better than your natural self. It means making good and hard choices and having the courage to live with them.

Integrity might mean taking exactly the time allotted to you for lunch or breaks instead of running long as your colleagues do. It is doing the right thing when no one is looking or even cares…because that is what you are and how you behave.

Be a man or woman of integrity. In whatever you do. Do it with no thought of reward. Do it because it is the right thing to do.
