    yes, but just making it clear: being honest and being a jackass are two different things. there are good ways to tell the truth, without sugar coating, without being an ass.

    The first rule in business is honest people don’t make money you can have a lot of friends but you don’t make money . It is a matter of how far you want to go with it

    ...and being able to recognise the truth when it has become totally obvious, even if its uncomfortable for yourself, and accept it and move on for the greater good of everyone....

    ..is very important.

    It is complicated. Is anything short of absolute truth truthful? Does anything conceptual (or otherwise) on this planet matter at all in the context of the entire universe?

    Presentation is everything. Some people don't get this, and then they wonder why nobody is interested in hearing anything they have to say.

    It is all about what spin you put on it . You have to pick and choose what the truth is . Some times you have to dig deeper to find it

    Exactly, no one that is 100% honest, has a soul and treats others well like fellow human beings will have tons of money meaning millions or billions!

    Biddlin, it always matters.

    Truthfulness is next to godliness.

    It matters.

    Truthfulness and Honesty are not the same things.
