The difference between people is the difference in information. You are in an industry, if you know more about the industry than others, you are also capable. The biggest advantage of having an understanding of the industry is that you can think up-level.
Liang Ning talked about points, lines and planes. If there is no accumulation in the industry, your thinking may only be a single point, but if you have industry email list knowledge, you can look at problems into volumes, and you have more keen insight in the cube.
If you always feel that your insight is not enough or your essential thinking is not enough, one of the reasons is that you have too little understanding of the overall situation of things, and you can't have insight when you see that things are one-sided. This is like when you stand on the top of the mountain, you can easily see where the depression is, but when you see it on the middle of the mountain, you think it is a depression in front of you.
The higher the dimension, the more insightful.
If you have a better understanding of the industry than others, you are thinking about raising your dimensionality, and you are a dimensionality reduction blow to others. You are talking about information points that others do not know, and others will think you are amazing at this time. This is why it is often recommended not to change jobs across fields frequently, because the knowledge of an industry itself is your ability.
After work, I basically spend 1 hour every morning browsing information, such as everyone is a product manager tweet, 36 cross-border information, etc., or communicate with some peers in the industry, to get information that cannot be touched in the office information chain, continue to expand their horizons.
Although I am sitting in the office, my mind has always been active in the industry. In this era of information explosion, searching for good information is also your core competitiveness. People are the product of the environment. If you have been in an environment for a long time, you will gradually be assimilated into the thinking, vision and pattern of this environment.
Watching Wang Xing and Wang Huiwen talk about strategic thinking every day is very different from watching specific product design solutions every day. The point I want to mention is that I did see some friends, such as doing corporate instant messaging, but Feishu, Qiwei or Dingding did not study the industry benchmarking products or did not care about the dynamics.
Knowing yourself, knowing the enemy, and being victorious in a hundred battles, you can't just care about your own affairs, regardless of your surroundings.
