What I get from this article is the author is warning against “The law of the instrument”, as expressed in this well known saying:

“To a man with a hammer, every problem looks like a nail”.

So be wary of recommending a familiar, comfortable tool when you are unsure of the context or a better solution.

A good article on this subject is available at Wikipedia at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Law_of_the_instrument
