Most of my work is done independently. I don’t have someone constantly looking over my shoulder to ensure that I am making the right decisions. There are many chances to take shortcuts and just get through the day. Integrity is what keeps me honest. When I think about taking one of these shortcuts, I wonder about what it would say about my work ethic. If I chose to take these shortcuts it would bleed over into other aspects of my life. Soon most of my life would be in contrast to my core values. While this quote by Henry Ford talks about quality, I believe that the more appropriate word would be integrity.
