The Surprisingly Large Cost of Telling Small Lies

| Posted | Comments |

This New York Time article landed in my news feeds at a very unusual time. I don't think the timing could have been more perfect. Let's just say that some recent business dealing didn't turn out as rosy as I would have liked. I think the problem was exactly what this article talks about: a lack of honesty does nothing but ruin a good business relationship.

I try to always remain honest, transparent, and on the level with everyone I work with. What I didn't know, and what is perhaps the biggest lesson in business, is that not everyone I work with is honest with me. I learned a lot from the experience.

I value the relationships I have with my clients and partners. As such, moving forward, I will do my best to keep things as open and transparent as possible.
