Honesty Makes Sense!

Posted by Mark Salinas on March 20, 2010

What do you consider being honest? Is honesty only offering a response to a question with some truth? Are we being dishonest when we avoid telling a significant other, family member or friend something… to avoid a problem? Everyday it seems as though people are avoiding smaller and smaller issues. If we continue to ignore, hide or avoid a small issue, does it not eventually accumulate into a bigger issue?

Honesty is the Best Policy

.

My take: In business or personal, I believe that it is important to be honest. Yes, often the truth hurts but dealing with the uncomfortable feelings that could come from being forthcoming will only help us grow and become stronger. Obviously, when one conveys a message,  tact and consideration should be part of the delivery.  The more challenges we face (and overcome) the stronger our resolve is;  as we “tackle” the daily grind that life throws at us why not just be honest?
