Common Sense

Think before you act.

Common sense is sound logic with practical and good reasoning. It is searching for simple but very useful ways of making decisions to solve problems. We are all born with the ability to think, create, and solve problems. Common sense lives by the rule of thinking before you act. It helps us to see what can become of something like George Washington Carver did, who saw how practical resources could benefit many people in the world.

Common sense is not solely about using our minds to think of cool or witty inventions that will make us lots of money. It is about making wise decisions that affect our lives. When we lack common sense, we make decisions based on emotions rather than logic.
