English: Think independently.

A friend at Google+ shared this post with me, and I found it very helpful:  The cognitive biases that are killing your decisions by Jory Mackay.

From the post: "Groupthink—a phenomenon where the desire for harmony among the group causes outside opinions to be suppressed. All of a sudden, dissenting thoughts become toxic and we begin to self-censor—losing our individual creativity, uniqueness, and independent thinking."

Jim Hightower quote in the post: "The opposite of courage is not cowardice; it is conformity. Even a dead fish can go with the flow."

Don't be afraid to be different!

Think independently.
