Opinion is often derided (”well that’s just your opinion”) as inferior to fact.
I happen to value opinions a great deal. Next time someone asks you for a fact or some data, think about how you can provide them with value by offering your opinion. This might require some thinking and a little extra time but I guarantee that you’ll enrich yourself, learn more and win points with the recipient.
I have a broken leg is a fact…my opinion is that having a broken leg has made me more sanguine and tolerant and has enabled me to see life through a different lens.
Give and ask for opinions. See what you get back – you might be delighted (that’s just my opinion)
