30 Days of Abraham Lincoln – Day 20

…resolve to be honest at all events; and if in your own judgment you cannot be an honest lawyer, resolve to be honest without being a lawyer. — 1850


My Take – Integrity is everything.  In addition to being honest in what you say and what you do, integrity also includes giving good value for your wages.  When you find yourself no longer able to give your employer or your business everything it deserves in exchange for your paycheck, then it’s time to find something else to do.
