Keeping Your Word

Integrity includes, but is not limited to, doing what you say you will do.

It’s common when people think of integrity to reduce it to “I said I was going to do X, so I’m going to do X.”  Yes, being true to your word is a powerful skill.  It builds trust with others–and with yourself!  But doing what you say you do is merely consistency, and consistency is only one part of integrity.
