Great question. There are many possible hub ideas with that question. There are four answers so far, and I agree with all. My two cents worth is I compromise everyday to achieve my goals. Sometimes compromise goes by disguises like 'lets make a deal' or negotiate, or bribery, or well you know what I mean. I agree with the statements regarding integrity in a general way. In philosophy it is called ethics. And there is a whole field of thought/study/application on 'situational' ethics, which is used a lot with the law and medical fields. Another interesting place to look at is the military for compromise on a personal level. As soon as you sign the dotted line you have compromised, in my view.
