Honesty is a Choice!

It really is a choice, one or the other.

  • Either you recommend the best option for your customer, or to push your item first.

Being honest is being generous.

Opposite of honestly is not dishonesty. No, it’s not.

The opposite of honesty is gutlessness (and even characterlessness)

Honesty is in little things…

  • I’ll be there in 10 minutes… [Only if I can travel with speed of light]

You have an option. To be optimist [or even positive]. But honesty is also an option. Remember — when you announce things based on optimism, the rest of the world you’re engaging with builds plans around you and your announcement. And the cost of the person who doesn’t have your shipment or is sitting around a meeting room waiting is high indeed.

The alternate is honesty. Commitment without negotiation.

I know it’s important to deliver when it’s ready — but it’s even more important to deliver when it’s due.

Honesty is a choice. A choice to be made by people who value themselves and people around!
