How often do you actually listen to your own common sense?
That’s the instinctive little voice inside your head that gives you advice, ideas, and inspiration, that is … when you’re tuned in to listen to the channel. Dozens of times a day, we have the experience of having a thought or idea that might seem so simple, yet it can transform everything … unless we fail to see it, capture it or follow through on it.
Action Steps to Develop the Superpower of Common-Sense
- Use your Superpower Guidebook to record your insights and perspectives on the world around you, especially to the answer of the question, “how can I add more value?”
- Make a list of the top 10 skills you need for your career. Rate yourself on a scale of 1 to 10, with one being poor and 10 being excellent on how well you perform each skill set. Even if you are an expert you can always better your best. Practice doesn’t make perfect… practice makes improvement. Repeat the process again for the skill sets you need in all of the roles of your life, like being a parent, spouse, a friend, a colleague, a leader, or coworker.
- Ask yourself empowering questions on how you can improve your skill sets. You’ll be amazed at how quickly your powerful brain will deliver the answers to you. This isn’t a magic bullet or quick fix, but a strategy that will serve you in all areas of your life. The power of questioning is the secret weapon on your journey of success.
Start listening to that little voice and capture your ideas. There are really only two ways to gain knowledge and develop your common sense. First, you can learn the hard way where life keeps giving you the same lesson over and over again until you learn the lesson. Second, you can learn from other people’s experiences, like reading books and the other resources in your success library. You do have a success library don’t you? If not, then my Superpower book is a great start.
