COMMENTARY: Truth Matters. Trustworthiness Matters.

Truth matters and its your moral responsibility to find it. Trustworthiness matters and its your moral duty to insist on it. Never in my lifetime has truth been more important or more illusive. Though hard to find, within every mountain of careless claims, unsubstantiated assertions, fallacious reasoning and outright lies there are true facts and credible sources. It is your … Read More The post COMMENTARY: Truth Matters. Trustworthiness Matters. appeared first on What Will Matter.

COMMENTARY: The Seven Cs of Character

As you consider your goals for the New Year, I hope you’ll think about working on your character. No, you’re not too old and I don’t mean to imply you’re a bad person. As I’ve said often, “you don’t have to be sick to get better.” In fact, it’s a lot easier to make a good person better than a … Read More The post COMMENTARY: The Seven Cs of Character appeared first on What Will Matter.

COMMENTARY: Trust Involves Character and Competence

http://media.blubrry.com/whatwillmatter/whatwillmatter.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/CC-110912-TrustCharacter-Competence.mp3

Today, I want to talk about the qualities that generate trust. I’m talking about being trustworthy, not trusting others. There’s a relationship between the two concepts, but a decision to trust another is a choice, not a moral obligation. Being trustworthy, however, is an indispensable aspect of good character. Thus, we should always act so as to be worthy of … Read More

The holiday we now celebrate as Veteran’s Day was originally called Armistice Day in tribute to the end of World War I on November 11, 1918. Sadly, the “war to end all wars” didn’t accomplish that goal. In 1954, Congress officially changed the name to Veteran’s Day. Too often we think of the term “citizen” only in terms of rights. … Read More

Just a few hours ago, I received a note from one of my oldest and dearest friends that his mom passed away.
