Early in the twentieth century, scientists observed that the bumblebee’s ratio of body weight to wingspan is disproportionate, so, aerodynamically speaking, bumblebees should not be able to fly.
Despite what science said, however, bumblebees can fly. They must fly to survive, so they just do it. It’s lucky that bumblebees pay no attention to scientists, or they would never dare leave the ground again.
But people, however smart or skilled they might be, do not always get off the ground. We all know someone who repeatedly makes poor life decisions-and who among us doesn’t look back with regret on some of our won choices?
Must we drift without direction for the rest of our lives? Are we doomed if we seem incapable of using common sense? No, says bestselling author and professional speaker Barry Siskind. We are born with common sense, but we don’t always use it. Siskind shows you how to develop and master it in his Seven Strategies of Common Sense:
Doubt the obvious
Let you reach exceed your grasp
Transform information into knowledge
Embrace the unexpected
Stay on course
Don’t’ be afraid to change horses in midstream
After mastering these simple yet shrewd strategies, you will begin to make confident decisions, improve your foresight, listen to the wisdom already deep within you-and fly!
