These are two words that get tossed about together these days probably more than they ever have in the history of the human race due to the advancement, stop laughing damn it, of communications technology. This person’s ethics are wanting, that person has a lack of integrity, you better be able to stand behind that statement,…., tedious eh?
Here’s my take on this situation from a very simple, reducing stress and no sense inviting a stroke or heart issue over it, approach. If you can not make a defensible logical argument to support it then do not sign it. Don’t sign something just to get some nagging know it all, they really don’t, off of your back. Don’t agree to something because it’s how it has always been done when you know it isn’t correct. And don’t let that bastard own you with worthless stress over things that in the long view do not have an impact.
Back to reality.
The above paragraph pushes a position that seems righteous and valid yet it is really becoming unsustainable in the extreme. Everyday in some facet of life we run into things that will test our ethics. As a functioning, contributing adult in society we will hit situations that require integrity to see us through. In the end it really is what we are left with so don’t give it away. Rather I invite you to pick your battles using discretion and get perspective to differentiate mountains from mole-hills. Depending on whether you are a mole.
