Go opposite

I'm on a cruise ship at present and, as usual, studying crowd behaviour (yeah, I know...). And once again I come to the conclusion that you're usually better off doing the opposite to the mob. Eat at different times to them, walk the decks at different times to them and so on. A good example this morning was when some whales were sighted off the stern. Over the next ten minutes everyone congregated there - in vain. The whales had of course moved on. The smart move would be to go look elsewhere - off the bow for instance. As Robert Kiyosaki says (in reference to the stock market) in his terrific book Rich Dad, Poor Dad: "Ignore the crowd, they always arrive late and get slaughtered."  If you do what everyone else does, you get what they get. If you want something different you gotta DO something different.
