thinking on our own

Is the most contrarian thing to do. We follow each other for decisions on low priority items (what to order at a resturant, what car to buy, what to wear, ..) and thats all good but for our high priority items it pays to think on our own.

In that thinking, being more specific is valuable. For example, instead of asking if crypto is valuable, its a good question to ask if a particular currency (ethereum/bitcoin/) is valuable at its price today.

In terms of our career, what worked for X does not mean it will work for me.
