"Digital thinking means combining things to make something new" -

Dr. Eyal Doron​

There's a known concept in the Israeli army that everything can be divided to three.

I learned later in life that everything is connected and that I love Venn Diagrams and one of the best examples and the one that has helped me the most is the Hedgehog concept by Jim Collins.

We’ve been brought up in a world that says there can only be one best but the truth is there are many bests and we need as many as we can have to change and better the world we live in.

Here’s a concept that can help you understand what are you the best at and what passions you should follow.


Ask yourself the following three questions:

1) What are you deeply passionate about?

What would you love waking up in the morning, every morning for?

2) What are you the best in?

Not compared to others but something that you are so good that you say "I'm really good, I'm the best at ________"

3) What drives your economic engine?

What can you be paid for doing that can cover your needs while you breakthrough to your next level?
