I have heard it said that 'the fox knows many small things, but the hedgehog knows one big thing.' Thoughts on this saying?
What I catch from this is that the hedgehog takes only one straight reliable road, whereas the fox takes multiple roads. Looking at this as an attack and defence situation; the fox has many methods of attack, and the hedgehog has one form of defence, but that single form of defence could block all of the fox’s multiple attacks. Relating it to real life, you can bring up “Jack of all trades, master of none”. You are good at multiple things but not a master at any of them, whereas someone else comes along and they are a master of one thing, but not really good at anything else. Personally, I’m not sure which side I stand on yet but that’s my take on it. I could be looking too deep into it, or the true meaning just flew over my head 😂.
