Common sense is the knack of seeing things as they are, and doing things as they ought to be done.

Explore

We humans are explorers. We go places, just because we’ve never been there before. We explore new ways of expressing ourselves, new methods for doing business, new technologies.

Exploration embodies some of the most positive qualities that we can attain. It is an act of faith, of courage, optimism, confidence, discipline and self reliance. Exploration is curiosity with commitment, with risk, and with the potential for great reward.

The best explorers are serious and disciplined enough to survive, yet at the same time bold, open-minded and energetic. Explorers are highly resourceful, making the most use of what they have. Explorers are clearly focused, and yet always maintain a child-like wonder at the discoveries which are unfolding around them.

Whatever you do, take time to explore. There is so much for you to discover -- places, people, ideas, techniques, perspectives. And your spirit of exploration will bring out the best in you.

— Ralph Marston
