There are two forms of dishonesty: the first is marked by a conscious attempt to deceive, whether by being outright misleading, exaggerating your claims, or withholding information; the second is unintentional, often the result of an honest mistake or a misunderstanding due to poor communication. Both are equally damaging and should be avoided at all costs. After all, it takes a long time to earn confidence and trust, but both can be quickly destroyed if you do not live up to your claims. Honesty isn’t the best policy; it is the only policy.
