### Mistakes

We all make them. We dwell on the little ones and beat ourselves up over the big ones. Society leads us to beleive that perfection is the key to success; our errors are a direct reflection of our competency and self worth. Therfore, we try to minimize the mistakes we make, or worse, we refrain from activity or decisions altogether for fear of making them.

### The Hedgehog Concept

I recently listened to a podcast with Jim Collins, a brilliant thinker, entrepreneur, and writer on the topics of business and leadership. One of his ideas is the “Hedgehog Concept” which is based on a famous essay by Isaiah Berlin, titled “The Hedgehog and the Fox”. The title is an ancient reference to the Greek poet Archilochus: “A fox knows many things, but a hedgehog one important thing”. And this is ultimately a metaphor for how the world is divided. On one side, there are the foxes who draw upon different experiences and ideas in which to view the world. On the other side, the hedgehogs are those which see the world through a single defining idea.
