It is critical to understand the abstract specificity of any situation.
I might believe it takes hard work to graduate from high school... but it actually takes 120 credit hours.
I might wonder how many miles I can wait before changing my oil... but 3,000 miles or 3 months is a precaution not a rule.
I often get too abstract or too specific. Sometimes I even bounce back and forth. The equilibrium between is not perfect, but it's an exceptional guide.
Where could you benefit from finding abstract specificity?
