Remembering Common Sense (Part 2)

  1. In general, rather than looking for complicated ways to do things, we're going to do the opposite. (Principle 1, “Many things are simple.”)

  2. In considering any venture, undertaking, or project, we need to understand what it is we're trying to do. (Principle 2, “Know what you're trying to do.”)

  3. Once we know what we're trying to do, Principle 3 (“There is always a sequence of events”) guides us through doing it.

  4. The sequence of events happens only if people do the jobs in the sequence. (Principle 4, “Things don't get done if people don't do them.”)

  5. No matter how well thought out the sequence of events is, there are always surprises. (Principle 5, “Things rarely turn out as expected.”)

  6. As our sequence of events unfolds, jobs in the sequence are either complete or they are not. (Principle 6, “Things either are or they aren't.”)

  7. As well as keeping things simple, we should always consider various viewpoints. (Principle 7, “Look at things from others' points of view.”)
