What do people want? This is the question to ask when we build a product or when something must be satisfied so it sells more. But for a business, this may be a great question, but for individuals, this is a very bad question to ask. Why? Almost all people around you do compare you with people who are similar to your age. This is something that you need to notice and understand yourself. This is how the crowd works. Showing off is something that is cool today. Most of it is because of social media platforms. There may be quality in the content people upload, but very little quality within the individuals.
But most of them are trapped in short-term satisfaction. Winning in the short term may not guarantee the long-term of the same state. This is what I believe in. Short-term adversity will give you much more than the short-term win.
