Common Sense vs. “That makes sense”.

Caution: Rant Ahead.
Subject: Don’t be “that guy”.

You know the one. He lives in his mom’s basement, has snack crumbs all over his shirt and pauses his video game long enough to troll the internet and say something stupid about something he has no clue about… specifically when he learns a private investigator secret and then says, “That’s just common sense”.

You especially see this when he learned the trick for free online because, when he gets something for free, he has no appreciation for the VALUE of the technique! He has no idea how much money you can make or how much heartache it saves a real P.I.!

On the other hand, if you’re sincere in your desire to learn (and if your reading this, I suspect you are!), then you understand that just because a secret “makes sense” once you’ve learned it, that does NOT mean it’s common sense! And it certainly doesn’t mean you would have figured it out on you own.

Don’t mistake “that makes sense” for “common sense”.

It sure would be nice if the trolls would be a little grateful when an experienced teacher shares something with them.

Don’t be “that guy”. When you learn a trick from someone who’s been there and done that, realize you’re learning money making, case solving, solid information!

Have you had an experience where someone undervalued what you did for them just because you did it for free? Let me know about it in the comments below.

Committed to your success,
Larry Kaye,
Private Investigator
