November and December are busy months as we prepare for the holidays. It is a time also for reflection as we say “Good bye” to 2014 and look forward to 2015. Our Work To Be Done list sometimes grows faster than our Work Accomplished list. It is easy to minimize our personal accomplishments or the accomplishments of our organization. Year after year it continues – sometimes we’re weary, stressed out, and wonder if it is worth it. Are we making a difference?
The Story of Three Bricklayers is often used by motivational speakers to inspire people
to value their individual efforts in the scope of the greater good:
Once upon a time, there were three bricklayers.
When asked, “What are you doing?”
The first bricklayer replied: “I’m laying bricks.”
The second bricklayer was asked the same question.
He answered: “I’m putting up a wall.”
The third bricklayer, when asked the question “What are you doing?” responded, with pride in his voice: “I’m building a cathedral.”
Sometimes it may feel like we’re just doing our work, laying bricks or building a wall and we’ve lost touch with the value of our work to the “big picture”. However, it is all important – each person is important – each job is important. Together we are creating a better world for our pets and ultimately a better world – it all makes a HUGE difference!
