"Common sense in an uncommon degree is what the world calls wisdom." Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Literary Remains of Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Vol. 1 We all have equal time in a day which we use to do our daily tasks. We choose what to do. We have the freedom of choice, we do some things by making decisions with our instincts and sometimes, schedules and other factors. But, most times it feels like one can't make the right decisions, or do the right things; they think their decisions are always bad and not satisfying. The mind tend to listen or copy others and their logical way of doing things instead of relying on their innate senses that says "it’s this is wrong," or "this is right." To have common sense is to know that if you put your hand in the fire, for instance, you will get burnt and hence you do not do so..It is only common sense. Too many people, not minding their own problems, focus instead on other people’s problems or good fortune thus they do not show their common sense. The lack of common sense here may trigger negative emotions such as greed and envy because they do not focus on themselves but on others..
