“Integrity Is Doing What’s Right No Matter What The Cost”

(Anonymous pearls of wisdom discovered on a public parking lot restroom wall below Table Mountain, Capetown, South Africa )

Wikipedia’s Integrity definition is also quite good. Here it is: “Integrity is the basing of one’s actions on an internally consistent framework of principles. Depth of principles and adherence of each level to the next are key determining factors. One is said to have integrity to the extent that everything one does and believes is based on the same core set of values. While those values may change, it is their consistency with each other and with the person’s actions that determine the person’s integrity.
The concept of integrity is directly linked to responsibility in that implementation spawning from principles is designed with a specific outcome in mind. When the action fails to achieve the desired effect, a change of principles is indicated. Accountability is achieved when a faulty principle is identified and changed to produce a more useful action.”
