Idea πŸ’‘

β€œIt’s easy to stand with the crowd, it takes courage to stand alone.” – Gandhi

Reflection πŸ€”

It's easy to fall out of step with yourself if you're always focused on fitting in. Blindly following the crowd will lead to burnout, dishonest work, and a loss of interest in what you originally loved creating.
