What If You Stopped Expecting Others To Have Your Common Sense?

Common sense dictates that common sense is not too common. Makes sense?

Stop expecting others to have your “common sense”. Just stop it.

Your employees, your business partners, your customers, even your close relatives… they don’t think the way you do.

If you want others to do something or act a certain way, make it absolutely clear. Merely hoping that they have “common sense” could set you up for heartache.

    oh no. you can’t be saying one should just stop use using common sense just because most of the people around you are too lazy to walk the bridge to reason. i think mankind will be subjected to a lot less angst and ennui if only they’d give common sense a chance.

      Thanks for that superbly written comment, Marsha!

      I agree that “common sense” should be given a chance…
      but I have trained myself not to expect everyone to have the same parameters. 🙂
