Truth, with strategy!

We have a mistaken belief that being truthful means being unfiltered.


Or that there's a tension between being clever & strategic, on the one hand, and being honest & authentic, on the other. You're either clever, or honest; either strategic, or authentic.


Nonsense!


Being truthful & authentic doesn't mean being stupid.


I often say, "Start with the truth, but don't necessarily end there."


Keep going, until you arrive somewhere nice.


Build a strategy around your truth.


Truth is the foundation of what you want to build. But you still have to build: the right narrative, the right framing, the right words, the right tone, the right conclusion.


Always start with the truth; but don't necessarily end there.


Be clever, strategic, and intentional about your truth and authenticity.


Pick chips made of truth; but you still have to play the game!


Truth, with strategy!
