omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have
and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely
- George Santayana
||Questions to Help You Measure Your Integrity
by John C. Maxwell
- "How well do I treat people if I gain nothing?
- Am I transparent with others?
- Do I role-play based on the person(s) I'm with?
- Am I the same person in the spotlight as I am
when I'm alone?
- Do I quickly admit wrongdoing without being
pressed to do so?
- Do I put people ahead of my personal agenda?
- Do I have an unchanging standard for moral
decisions, or do circumstances determine my choices?
- Do I make difficult decisions, even when they
have a personal cost attached to them?
- When I have something to say about people, do I
talk to them or about them?
- Am I accountable to at least one other person for
what I think, say, do (Maxwell, 2003, p. 61)?"

Pounce on a Project IX-- 2006
Last month our focus was cleaning up space,
computers and drawers and finishing projects. The
group motivation was flowing. We all felt lighter at
the end of the session. What project would you like
to get on top of and accomplish this month? Come to
Pounce on a Project IX -- 2006. Join
Coach Andrea on Thursday, October 19th, from 9:00
a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Eastern. We will join as a group
by phone and declare what you want to accomplish:
completing a marketing brochure, filing that pile in
the corner that keeps growing, getting your website
finished, complete a client project or make cold
During the morning, the group will gather by phone a
few times to check progress and get any support
needed to finish with a bang. At noon, the group will
celebrate their accomplishments. Who says projects
have to be boring and tedious? Bring your lightness
and fun and join us for the energization. To sign up
or learn more, call or e-mail Andrea by noon on
Wednesday, October 18th. Feel free to share this
with friends and co-workers, the more the merrier.
(Cost of the program is only the cost of long
distance phone calls.)
