The Law of Small Things
Most of us take our integrity for granted. As a result, a false confidence distorts our decision-making as individuals, in business and in our nation. The big breaches of integrity we see all around us—that we tend to blame on others—can be addressed by the “practice” of integrity as a learned skill, in our individual relationships, our workplaces and in our nation.
But first, we have to let go of the illusion that we “have” integrity as a matter of intuition and that we are innately ready for big things without practicing on small things.
“Integrity: The state of being whole and undivided; the condition of being unified, unimpaired or sound”
We all think we have integrity, but actually, most of us make small ethical compromises constantly. Then, we construct elaborate systems of justification to persuade ourselves that we “have integrity” even as we breach it.
This User's Manual will redefine the meaning of personal integrity by looking at the “small” breaches of integrity we commit in the course of everyday life and the huge consequences that result.
The User's Manual will guide you through the fog of misconceptions, illusions and evasions that deprive our lives of authenticity and contentment.
It offers a way to transform our personal lives, as well as the life or our nation, by focusing on “small things.”
