Featured Planning TipPlan with integrity
Integrity refers to steadfast adherence to a code of moral or ethical values. Planning with integrity engenders trustworthiness of the planner.
One who displays integrity in planning is sincere, honest, and uses candor with friends and allies.
"One of the important elements of integrity is consistency - if we are unpredictable, if our decisions are dependent upon the day of the week, and the way we are feeling, others are unlikely to see us as maintaining integrity."
Adhering to one\'s values during a planning process should be easy and an accepted principle. The problem is that many of us don\'t have a clear understanding of our own values and moral principals. We don\'t examine what we believe and we make rapid choices in situations that call for complex value judgments. It is no wonder that some people appear vacillating and inconsistent. Plan with integrity means one needs to periodically assess what is right and wrong and continually ask "Am I doing what is right?" or "Am I doing what is expedient?" or "Am I doing what is convenient?" or even "Am I doing what is only in my self interest?"
