Two Hundred and Ninety Third Question

Thanks to LWI for submitting today's Big Question...


"Integrity is doing the right thing when no one else is looking." - Carl Sanburg

Have you ever done anything with integrity even
though you knew no one else would know?

    Ergo... I couldn't possibly comment...

    Honestly... I do everything with integrity, and don't care if anyone notices or not. I have to live with myself... :)

    I'm with rebecca. I wasn't taught to do otherwise, and I'm still trying...

    I try to do everything with integrity, which is close to impossible in the corporate world. The thing I really pride myself on (and I know it sounds ridiculous and small) is ALWAYS returning my shopping cart to the designated cart holder in the parking lot. :)~

    pixie--me too

    I also try to do everything with integrity--I often do things for people at work, I have a very strong conscience--I feel guilty for a week if I don't act with integretiy.

    I think I try to live day-to-day with integrity. It doesn't always work, but I do try.

    I tend to do the little things right since many times it's easy to say" no one will care since it's such a small thing" but those add up to me. The big things like taxes or hit and runs I always take the high road on....

    The definition of integrity goes a little further, in my opinion. Integrity happens when you ask yourself, is this something I'D be happy with if the shoe was on the other foot? It goes back to the Golden Rule: Treat others the way you wish to be treated.
    For example: Would I be satisfied with the service/treatment/goods that I'm giving them?
