(Good to Great) The Hedge Hog concept

This is a small creature that doesn't do a lot of things in life, but what he does he does well. He Eats, Sleeps and just keeps from being eaten by preditors like the Red Fox. When they are in danger they roll into a ball with there sharp pins ready to stick there attacker. Jim descirbes this as when you try to find the things that we are passionate about in life. Things that we do because we have a natural instinct for and we are good at and love to do them. If you are good at building houses then build houses.

1. What you can be the best in the world at (and, equally important, what you cannot be the best in the world at).

2. What drives your economic engine.

3. What you are deeply passionate about

These three things help make the Hedge Hog who he is. Take some time to think about what you do good and write them in three circles. in the area where the there circles overlap is your area of greatness. Find this area and work on these skills.
