      The trick is to listen to everything, but also say no to almost everything.

      Sounds like being a PM to me 😅

      "the fox knows many things, but the hedgehog knows one big thing."

      The foxes and hedgehog dichotomy is one I have been pondering the past few months... as I try to implement more cross-disciplinary thinking to my approach for the way in which I think.

      It is great to have the ability to parse many ideas. However, picking the needle in the idea haystack is the true challenge.

      If a 100 new alluring little foxy ideas, insights and observations hit you every week, and can pick out the 1 that is worth responding to, you're a foxhog.

      time to become a foxhog!
