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

Don’t ignore the obvious

Sometimes what you’re searching for does not really need to be searched for. It’s right in front of you.

Sometimes the best answer is the most obvious one. Often, when something seems too simple and obvious and unsophisticated, that’s because it is exactly the right approach.

It’s important to think carefully about whatever you do. Yet it’s just as important not to over think it to the point that you fail to take action.

A complex approach might seem shrewd. Yet a direct approach may be much more effective.

Your dreams deserve your best efforts, and it could just be that the most obvious effort is the best effort. The reason common sense is so common is because it has been proven, again and again, to work.

Look in all the out-of-the-way spots, look for the hidden meanings, but also look at what’s right in front of you. Just because it’s obvious doesn’t make it worthless.

— Ralph Marston
