Integrity means doing the right thing at all times and in all circumstances, whether or not anyone is watching. It takes courage to do the right thing, no matter what the consequences will be. Building a reputation of integrity takes years, but it takes only a second to lose, so never allow yourself to ever do anything that would damage your integrity.
I believe that integrity isn’t talked about nearly enough. We live in a world where “the end justifies the means” has become an acceptable school of thought for far too many.
My grandfather lived an amazing life. He made many of his own life choices and the others were made for him by circumstance. He was a war vet (submarine duty in World War II and Korea), business owner multiple times, multiple marriages, long-distance trucker (before they had heat in cab of the truck) & he was a pilot. His took chances. He had successes. He had failures. Joe was a people guy. He had the gift of genuine concern and likability.
During his later years, I had the pleasure of working with him. Together we made sales calls for the family business. What we sold together is inconsequential. If you threw a rock, you could hit 3 places that sell what we sell. Still, he got it done.
