You Are Only As Good As Your Name
I have written about this topic before, you are only as good as your name. The lessons we teach our children is, to tell the truth, say please and thank you, be considerate of others, understand moral justice and what saying sorry means, be respectful of others and above all be honest.
I could go down a variety of paths but I can’t help wondering about people’s behavior these days. It is anything from unacceptable behavior in the workplace to making financial commitments and then just walking away from them. Is it a feeling of entitlement? Have people become so cavalier around commitments?
People’s name proceeds them. And if someone doesn’t know a person, it is easy to find their reputation out in a few easy clicks. These days it almost impossible to behave badly and believe that you can just sweep it under the carpet.
As we watch the fall out of many and there are certainly more to come and that includes investors who aren’t honest, make commitments and then just walk away, and bad behavior of others. Remember, you are only as good as your name.
