Common Sense Ain't So Common

This has always been one of my favorite quotes: "If you focus on the door that is closed, you will never see the one that is open." But what I have experienced the past few days has had me thinking, "what if the door that is open doesn't resemble any of the other doors you have ever seen?"

The door in front of you is a door full of great opportunity but, it is unfamiliar so you can't recognize it. If you don't know what you are looking for, how are you going to find that door or what key to use to unlock it?

Until someone shows you that door, you will never know it's there- ignorance. When someone or something finally shows you what to look for and how to open it, you enter into a whole other world of opportunity.

I have come to the conclusion that we must not assume someone knows something because it is "common sense." I believe common sense isn't so common anymore.

Take the time to show someone the proverbial "door" even if you think they know what it looks like. Call it a teachable moment it doesn't matter if you're young or old you never stop learning.

One last thing, when you show someone the way or someone shows you, you begin to see all the other doors just like it but it is only up to you to enter.
