Is it better to be conservative or aggressive towards the trend?We are living in a changing world and there is no doubt that we all have seen various trends in our lives in diverse sectors. As the nation progresses, improves, and develops, it is certain that we will encounter several trends. This gives rise to a very valuable question, what should be our approach towards the trend?
Broadly we can divide our approach into two factors as a conservative and an aggressive one. In the conservative approach we have limited risk factors as we can take our time to evaluate a trend. For example, we have observed the trend of buying a smartphone. Almost every few months there are new smartphones available in the market to purchase. I have seen people buying smartphones every few months to get updated with new features. We have noted that the new launch of the smartphone doesn't bring great updates but a small feature only (like adding one more camera to the phone etc). Instead, if we apply the conservative approach to buy a smartphone then we can wait for good additional genuine updates to arrive on the market. In this way, we can not only save our hard-earned money but it also allows us not to trap in the trend too. We can see our elders (parents etc.) are more conservative in their approach because experience has taught them how to use trends to our advantage but younger generations take it as that their parents and elders are against the trend.
Whereas the aggressive approach has further risk factors entailed in it. Considering the above criterion it looks like less experienced people fall into the trap of trend very easily which in effect may cause more harm to money and health as well. Generally, the younger generation has an aggressive approach in their actions. They are less experienced. Their approach is to be with the trend at any cost without giving a second thought. Sometimes aggressive approach may pay off but still, it should not be followed in the initial stages.
Please discuss what approach is better towards the trend?
