We have always been taught that having common sense is a good thing. Common sense is defined as having good sense or good judgement in practical things. Being common is average and ordinary. Common sense is good if all you want in life is to be average by living an average lifestyle, have an average job, drive an average car, have an average house, eat at average restaurants and travel to average places.
If you want to be great or want great things in your life, you have to tap into your superior sense and be impractical. Nothing great will be accomplished by being average. Common sense is essential as the basic fundamentals in life just like basic reading, writing and arithmetic skills but you will need more than common sense to make a massive impact in the world.
Being superior is to be higher in rank, status or quality. Majority of people use common sense. They work a common job, and get an average paycheck. Common sense will get you common results. If you learn how the elites of the world think and act then you will get elite and superior results.
Some people get ridiculed when they don’t have common sense. They get laughed at and the average person will say, you make no sense, or you have no common sense. Sometimes having no common sense is being insanely smart. Imagine all the great inventions we have today, do you think the inventors used simply common sense to come up with their ideas? I’m sure common sense played a role because a person must have normal operating sense before they can even attempt to do anything great. However, they had to tap into their superior sense and be impractical while the average, common-sense minded, and glass half empty people were telling them no they can’t do that.
In whatever you do, remember, average and common are good but superior is better. Never settle for good enough when great is available. You wouldn’t want your kids to settle for good enough so why should you? Lead by example by operating on superior sense and force your offspring to elevate their game!
