Update to “Why Integrity Matters”

Last week I wrote a blog post about why integrity matters.  In that post I cited the example of Johnson and Johnson during the 1982 Tylenol scare.  I also cited the recent National Speakers Association re-branding to Platform.  I stated that our integrity (or lack thereof) shows when we find ourselves in a situation that we didn't expect and have to decide what to do.

I am pleased to announce that the NSA has decided to drop the name and start the re-branding process again. 

Why Integrity Matters

This week the National Speaker’s Association announced a new brand for their organization called “Platform”. That word sounds appropriate for a speaker’s organization, and we can all understand why the acronym for the NSA isn’t exactly held in high regard right now. However, there’s just one problem with this new brand. It’s uncannily close to Michael Hyatt’s.


The Perils of Perfectionism

I confess.  I have very high expectations of myself.  I have been that way ever since I can remember.  I expect to be the best at what I do.  I expect to work hard.  I expect to always say the right thing.  I expect to not make a mistake.  I expect not to hurt anyone.  I expect, I expect, I expect.

There is nothing wrong with high expectations.  It is good to work hard, to push yourself beyond where you are now, work towards excellence, or as Michael Hyatt says, “Aim for WOW!”  Low expectations leave us stagnant.  According to Les Brown, “Most people fail in life not because they aim too high and miss, but because they aim too low and hit.”
