Do you wonder how common sense doesn’t seem so common anymore? So to the internet I went for a little more digging and I found an article about eight steps to develop your commonsense further. Nice to know that like any other skill or habit that we have in our lives, it can be developed with more frequent practice and intentional use. I’m betting you are wondering what common sense has to do with the whole concept of green.
For those of us working and living in the world of green building, green homes, and green living, apply the principles of “green” are common sense to us. Green boils down to a practical set of values and practices that means using what we have more wisely, making it last and not making decisions based only on short term outcomes. The end game is the longer run too and there is a focus on the present and the future. Personally, I believe there is a practical approach to help us implement little ways and big ways that we can impact our day-to-day living as well as our big investments like our homes.
