I’m reading another great book called, “Ordering Your Private World” by Gordon McDonald. In it McDonald details the necessity of making sure your inner world lines up with your outer world.
This quote that really struck me “…one can go a long way, impress a lot of people, simply with the facility of words. So it becomes easy to make promises, verbalize intentions, express one’s convictions with seeming passion.”
This reminded me of the fact that you can SAY anything, but it all boils to what you DO – implementation. Does what you SAY match up with what you DO? If not, slow down and make sure it does. Your personal integrity depends on it.
