“Look at every path closely and deliberately, then ask ourselves this crucial question: Does this path have a heart? If it does, then the path is good. If it doesn't, it is of no use.” ~Carlos Castaneda

How honest are you?

“Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom.”
~Thomas Jefferson

I am in the process of putting posts together on professionalism. Honesty and integrity seem to be universally seen as a part of being professional. On my favorite podcast (Keith and the Girl), they mentioned a recent internet published study on whether or not people would return a wallet they found. I thought the results were interesting. It is called the Wallet Test. Would you return the wallet?

“Integrity is telling myself the truth. And honesty is telling the truth to other people.”
~Spencer Johnson

The real test is when they are struggling financially and find the wallet...and turn it in anyway.

I'm not a student, and have just found your blog. I love the quotes you use. I love the fact you see the whole patient and not just their case before you. I hope you don't mind my popping in. You have a great site here.
