‘For the great enemy of truth is very often not the lie–deliberate, contrived and dishonest–but the myth–persistent, persuasive, and unrealistic.’John F Kennedy
Yale University Commencement: June 11, 1962
John F Kennedy also said:
‘No matter how big the lie, repeat it often enough and the masses will regard it as truth.’
The project management lesson I take from Kennedy’s ‘Great enemy of the truth’ quotation is simple. It’s the importance of communicating plentifully and openly.
