Three bricklayers were asked: “What are you doing?”
- Number one says, “I am laying bricks.”
- Number two says, “I am building a church.”
- Number three says, “I am building the house of God.”
The first bricklayer has a job. The second has a career. The third bricklayer has a calling.
Purpose (defined here as the intention to contribute to the well-being of others) matters. And the higher up the “success chain” you look, the more purpose you’ll find.
So what about you?
Are you pouring countless hours, month after month into your job, career or calling? And in the same role or not, should something change?
