I am glad to come across this "common sense" bit of information in a written down, easy to digest form.
In the last couple of weeks, I have been presented wtih new opportunities, both professional and personal, that I need to assess and decide which to pursue.
What other "common sense" bits of information do others use before saying "YES" to new opportunities?
