Conventional is a good fall-back position isn’t it?

Conventional to me is always the safe option, the word conventional sounds boring and un-spontaneous but sometimes that might be the best option. Conventional wisdom (CW) is a term used to describe ideas or explanations that are generally accepted as true by the public or by experts in a field. This proves that conventional is usually by definition accepted as it is responsible. Unconventional on the other is the opposite.

Most people like to do things that aren’t always safe and accepted, things become boring and mundane when we do everything thing the conventional way. But what happens when we try doing things differently and fail? Sometimes in life falling back on the conventional way of thinking can be the best option. So next time you have a decision to make, try the unconventional way because you will always have the other option to fall back on.

“As a rule, I am very careful to be shallow and conventional where depth and originality are wasted.” Lucy Maud Montgomery
