when to make component and when not to?

i have done PendingGuest in GuestList and i did not make a seperate component for it. the my reason was cause i wont reuse this component in other components. please tell me if i am right or i have to make separate component? is there any standard or rule that defines when to make component and when not to?

Winkly Yau, I think you are correct. As far as I can see, the whole purpose of making new components is to create clean, organized, maintainable, and DRY React code. You definitely DO NOT HAVE TO make a new component every time. In fact, I think that it is great that you have taken initiative and done things you own way here. Great work! :)
