We have so many energy leaks in our lives:
- things we do, but wish we wouldn’t
- things we don’t do, but wish we did
- things others told us to do, but we don’t know why we do them
- things we beat ourselves up for that could easily be done or eliminated
To eliminate these, DO THEM RIGHT AWAY! This is a simple way to restore your sense of control in your life and create peace. This leaves you much more ready to respond positively to daily events.
To raise the level of your own !Ntegrity daily, ask the following questions. They test the key character traits necessary to make sure that your personal and professional choices possess and demonstrate !Ntegrity:
Daily, monitor your honesty.
*Did you “neglect to tell the truth” at any time today?
*Did you say Yes when you really should have said No? This is “pleaser” behavior.
*Had you promised to do or commit to something, and then didn’t deliver?
*Did you mislead someone by agreeing to do something in less time than is realistic?
Take your sympathy, empathy, and compassion temperature every evening.
*Did you consider the impact of your behavior on other people before you acted?
*How considerate and kind were you with each member of your family today?
*Were you understanding, rather than judgmental, with a colleague or staff member?
*Did you remember to be empathically self-nurturing, as well as nurturing of others?
How would you measure your level of fairness during the day?
*Were you too critical, impatient, impulsive or rigid in any of your interactions?
*Were you controlling and not open to different ways of doing the same thing?
*After listening to others’ input, did you willingly share responsibility, co-operate, or delegate?
*Did you consider the equitable, ethical and moral implications of your choices?
How would you rate your self-control today?
*Did you lose control by acting impulsively instead of re-scheduling problem-solving?
*Did you create artificial or self-imposed deadlines, and then obsess over small details?
*Did you compulsively try to finish everything before you left work?
*Did you resist a temptation to do something unethical, or to act improperly?
How strong is your sense of duty as revealed in your behavior today?
*Were you consistent in honoring each personal responsibility and/or family obligation?
*Or, did you distract yourself with business worries and the use of technology?
*Did you do the “right thing” despite thefear of negative consequences?
*Or, were you tempted by the promise of a reward or a need for acknowledgment.
