For example: You may remember that I was thinking about integrity a couple of weeks ago; well I have recognised this as something I need to work on. I want to be someone who sticks to their word, who people can actually rely on; someone who is transparent in all that they do. Now I saw that this was a need in my life but have I done anything to actually implement change...nope.
So today I have been thinking about the excuses I make for not getting on with things. Far too often busyness is blamed - eg. "I'm too busy to deal with that now" and then there is never a time when I'm not too busy. Also I can justify behaviour being like "Oh yes it's something I need to work on but it's not that bad". Basically just trying to make it into not a big enough problem to actually tackle.
Well I've been trying to get practical because there is no point in just talking/thinking about things you want to change if you never actually get around to putting things into action.
SO - in my bid to improve my integrity I am going to be:
- Only agreeing to things I know I have time to do well
- Not boasting about myself
- Not gossiping
- Not exaggerating
- Telling the absolute truth
- Sacrificial with my time/energy
7 points - one to work on each day this week.
Anyone got any other excuses they use to get out of actually changing things?
