I’m going to hop in and say the opposite is also valuable. Sometimes acceding to the needs of business, a particular customer, or another team is absolutely in everyone’s best interest, even if you can’t immediately figure out what the value is, or the value seems marginal. I know that when I was starting out, I would gripe about seemingly pointless work (and I still do, working on it 😃) where the reality was that costs had been weighed well before I heard about the decision. I think that the intuition to judge whether a given solution is necessary, and whether it is solving the problem being described, is the thing that comes with time.
Yes, you're right. And it also comes with better knowing your team.
