That moment when you’re found out, what do you do?
You can start blagging, but there’d only be another moment like this, probably worse.
Or, you can own up and do something about it.
Bernadette Jiwa has it right when she reflects:
It turns out that genius isn’t just about intellect, it also requires an open heart.*
Blagging affects both the blaggee and the blagger. Hearts become more closed than open.
And we need an open heart because, as Joseph Campbell reminds us about what matters in life:
One way or another, we all have to find that best fosters the flowering of your humanity in this contemporary life and dedicate ourselves to that.**
