Use Your Common Sense Day
Date When Celebrated : Always November 4
It is important that you think before you act today. Why, you ask!? Because today is Use Your Common Sense Day. You can't use common sense, if you act without thinking. It only stands to reason, that a little common sense can avoid many problems and disasters.
There is a long history failures and disasters because people simply failed to use common sense, failed to think before they spoke or acted. Have you ever seen someone charge into a situation, acting like the proverbial " bull in a china shop"? With a little common sense, this would not happen. That leads us to the old saying "you can lead a thirsty horse to water, but you can' take him drink (another example of common sense, or lack thereof).
It is oh so easy to celebrate and participate in Use Your Common Sense Day. All you have to do, is stop for a moment and use common sense before proceeding with whatever you are going to say or do. It's as easy as that.
Origin of Use Your Common Sense Day:
Bud Bilanich , a career mentor focusing upon being the "common sense guy", is credited with creating this special day. Bilanich believes strongly in the power of applied common sense (makes perfect sense to me). Bilianich selected this date, as it is Will Rogers birthday. A famous saying of Will Rogers was "Common sense ain't that common." -- - ain't that the truth!?
There is very little information on the creation of Use Your Common Sense Day. It appears to have begun somewhere between 2010 - 2015.
