Integrity - S01E08 - SAIYSW

Integrity is a powerful and profound concept.

In my opinion - misunderstood and overused.

But what does it *really* mean? And how can be applied to empower us instead of demean our sense of who we are?

In this episode (the season one finale) I cover three definitions of integrity:

1) Integrity is doing the right thing when no-one is watching - a relatively common description

2) Integrity is conforming your reality to your words - from Stephen Covey's book The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People*

3) Integrity is the state of being whole and complete - from an interview with Economist Michael Jensen "Integrity: Without it Nothing Works"

Ideas you can do today:

_Download and read the interview from point 3 above

_Make a list of the promises you've made to other people. Do a complete inventory. See what you notice about doing this - are there any conversations to be had?

_Make a list of any messes you've made in a relationship this week. From the small ones to the big ones. Get in touch with a smaller one on the list today and clear up the mess.
