Integrity, like inconceivable.

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Rohan, my mostest favourite blog crush, wrote recently about his values and cultural tenets. In his post, he noted:

Integrity: I do what I say I will do

Rohan Rajiv – Clarity in values and cultural tenets

I perceive myself as having integrity and yet I’m conscious that I regularly don’t do what I say I will do. Mental health issues have cropped up and I’ve let myself off the hook. There’s another great new idea to pursue and so I don’t follow through on the old one(s), despite not making a conscious decision. The day has been more tiring than I expected. The week’s momentum was derailed by a frustrating encounter. The month has passed without the contribution I planned.

All the while, I try to act and respond with honesty and kindness, but I regularly fall short on doing what I say I will do. Acknowledging this demonstrates the need for my self-discipline to improve.
