Appropriate efficiency: In business, there is integrity and there is the lack of integrity. Integrity leads to appropriate efficiency.
When a company is appropriately efficient, its employees are skilled at what they do, they apply their skills appropriately, and they complete tasks safely and efficiently. Such companies use well maintained equipment within limits and intended scope of equipment application. Operators efficiently and appropriately operate this equipment.
You are always - no exceptions - better off working with and for individuals with high integrity versus those who lack it. Doing so teams you with a winner with winning ways. Not doing so is subjecting yourself to unscrupulous manipulation at best. There is no limit to how much of your priceless time, capability, reputation, and life are wasted, frittered, discounted, degraded, and destroyed by those who lack integrity. Human history is replete with examples of this as is the daily news and it occurs at all levels, cultures, and nationalities.
If you've worked in the construction industry, you've heard the statement "It's all about efficiency." When these words are spoken with integrity, the schedule, scope, and budget are based on appropriate efficiency. When spoken without integrity, it may imply to do whatever it takes to make a profit. Direction that lacks integrity may put employee's, customers, and the general public at risk. Injury and death of anyone unaware may be risked due to such manipulative behavior to save or make money inappropriately using manipulatable and participating employees.
So, choose integrity. As an eagle - drop the turkey. You instantly can soar much higher than you could the moment before. And from that point on, fly with eagles - indefinitely. The view and feeling of eagles is not only infinitely better, it's sustainable indefinitely.
