Did Fleetwood Mac Have It Right?

Remember the great song from Fleetwood Mac song “Little Lies” where the singer encouraged the listener to tell her lies, tell her sweet little lies.  The song was referring to the heartbreak of a broken relationship, how the heart break would be lessened if the couple could only lie their way to happiness.  In the real world it never works does it.

Now several researchers are saying there is a place for lies.  Not to another person, but to yourself.  Small lies that could inflate your sense of intelligence could help you attain goals.  There is a caveat, you can’t live your life permanently telling yourself these little lies.  Especially lying to yourself about a health condition.  Yeah, that could be a problem.  Don’t do that.  They mean small things like telling yourself you are a good public speaker to help overcome the nearly universal fear of speaking to a crowd.

One other problem seems to come to mind.  You could convince yourself you can solve everyone’s problems and start a career in politics . . . . . .+

(By the way – Happy Birthday Lindsay Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac!  66 today!)
