Purpose and Integrity
This Hillary Johnson post got me thinking about my own definitions of purpose and integrity.
With thanks to Ambrose Bierce:
Purpose: Trying to achieve something that you think is worth achieving, even when there isn't anyone around to impress.
Integrity: Applying the same standards to yourself that you use to judge other people when they're not around to hear what you're saying about them.
Regardless of the humor value, I do believe in my definitions, and try to live up to them.
