Is it practical to be Honest?
Dishonesty is everywhere. Personal temptation, pressure to maximize profits, pressure from others, culture, and environment seem to encourage 'lying'. Dishonesty may be described in terms that sound less morally offensive. Cheating and lying become "cutting corners" or "being competitive."
Many claim that being dishonest is necessary for success.
So in todays day and age, is it practical to be honest? Is honesty the best policy?
Closing Statement from W T
While we all want to be honest, the truth is, that truth hurts.
Some see honesty as not practical. They feel it gets in the way of quiet peaceful relationships.
In business, some use dishonesty to get ahead, risking their professional reputation.
In the end, though, I, along with others feel Honesty IS the best policy, and very practical to those whose life is governed by some sort of value system.
Thank you for participating.
