Seth's Blog: Why lie?

" "We've decided to hire someone with totally different skills than yours..." and then they hire someone just like you, but more expensive and not as good. "We're not going to buy a car this month, my husband wants to wait..."..."

 

I've been told a bit more than half the truth ONCE (I really mean a single time) in hundreds of situations.

This single (almost) truthful approach deserves my respect (would be full if the full truth had been presented to me). Because then I can actually evolve and make a choice.

 

I truly wish more people did the same.

 

If you tell the truth you are helping both yourself and the person you are telling it to. Think about that for a second.

So true!
