Protecting My Reputation

Spread the love

How do you react when someone attacks your reputation? Does it bother you? The skunk is an animal that survives in part because of its reputation. You will give it wide berth just because of that reputation and will go to great lengths to avoid ever knowing the spray of a skunk personally. Our own political system exploits the power of reputation, even over reality, by either hiring PR folks to artificially bolster a reputation or by focusing on any potential negatives in an opponent’s reputation instead of focusing on the issues. Somewhere between the skunk and politics we all have thoughts and feelings about our reputations.
