    Common Sense

    Common sense is acquired by enduring the rewards and consequences of decisions on our journey through life. We learn what works and use as a rule to live by. Also, we endured the pain from our wrong decisions.

    Instantaneous and unusual decisions create confusion among our friends and co-workers. Often we leap before we think through important decisions. To keep things flowing smoothly, the rationale for changes need to explained to workers. Even better but not mandatory is to tell them the reason for abrupt changes from normal or traditional methods now in use. You are right you, as owner or boss have a right to make the decision. Quick decisions often cause a loss of profit. Also these changes cause damage among the ranks of those under us. Employees’ confidence in our management is important to keep workers productive.

    Common sense says to think over any change. Meditate on the pros and cons of the situation. After due consideration, decide. After we decide, confidently act and assuredly move forward. Common sense does not cause us to stay in neutral but be wise as we proceed.
