I had a Math teacher in high school who always used to tell us that ‘Common sense is the only thing that you need to live your life’. Back then when we were all busy preparing ourselves daily to come out of high school with flying colours, rarely did we have the time to think. But when I look back now, what he said was so true.
You only need your common sense to succeed in this world. You need not have above average intelligence or you don’t have to a very bright memory. All you just need is a balanced proportion of the two.
So what is common sense ?
It’s just nothing but our own plain thinking. Thinking based on our experiences and the awareness that’s happening around us. Some people call it ‘plain logic’. That is all you need to ahead in today’s world, believe me. Use your simple logic and move ahead. There is no need to be too hard on yourself and start planning and preparing for everything.
When you see a cat jumping suddenly across the road while you are riding your cycle, you slow down your cycle and stop, isn’t it. It’s a simple logic that you apply then and there. You had no idea of the cats arrival 10 minutes before. When the situation arose, you acted accordingly.
That’s all you need to live in. Use such kind of logics in life, apply them at the appropriate situations and move along. That’s the best way to lead a life without any stress or preparedness. So use your common sense to achieve everything that you want to achieve.
