This November 4th, Bud Bilanich, the creator of ‘Use Your Common Sense Day,’ is asking people to use refrain from texting while driving. “I hope that if people can break this dangerous habit for one day, they can break it for good,” he says. His call for practical thinking on the roadways couldn’t be more timely. The Federal government estimates that 30% of all crashes in the U.S. involve driver distraction and the National Safety Council reports that motorists who text message while driving are six times more likely to be distracted.
It’s no surprise that Bilanich is calling for a moratorium on texting. The Denver-based success coach and motivational speaker is known as ‘The Common Sense Guy.’ He is a smart, but down-to-earth individual with a unique ability to relate to individuals at all levels regarding their life and career concerns and issues. “I have a PhD from Harvard with a common sense approach to my work that comes from my roots in the steel country of Western Pennsylvania,” he explains.
Bilanich originally registered the November 4th, Will Rogers’ birthday, as ‘Use Your Common Sense Day’ in 2004. (Among other notable quotes, Will Rogers said, “Common sense ain’t all that common.”) Bilanich’s goal was to “emphasize the importance of common sense...especially when it comes to creating life and career success,” he says. In the past, the theme of the day has focused on environmental issues. This year, the public-service-oriented Bilanich wanted to emphasize “something useful, practical, and educational that can help each of us as individuals and all of us as a nation to live longer and better.”
Common Sense Coaching
Bilanich’s pragmatic approach to life is the centerpiece of a million-dollar coaching business that helps people to achieve their goals through practical thought and behavior. He is also an author of 14 books on leadership and career success.

Bilanich believes that we all have innate common sense that tells us the right thing to do in ambiguous situations...even though we often choose to ignore that ‘inner voice.’ “I choose to listen to mine and it’s helped me get where I am today,” he observes. “And I help my clients tap into their common sense so they can enjoy the same kind of success that I have achieved,” he says.
Bilanich has spent his entire career in the personal development field, and has over 35 years experience working for and consulting with a variety of Fortune 500 companies and individuals. “My motto is ‘Work hard...Do your best...Help others...Use your common sense,’” he says. “A great way to do that is to refrain from texting while driving on November 4th...and in the future, too.”
