Sunday Survey - Are You A 1, 2 or a 3?

Ask yourself, which man (woman) are you?


One of my favorite quotes from Charles M. Schwab:

Three men were laying brick.

The first was asked: “What are you doing?”

He answered: “laying some brick.”

The second man was asked: “what are you working for?”

He answered: “Five dollars a day.”

The third man was asked: “What are you doing?”

He answered: “I am helping to build a great cathedral.”

Which man are you?




Too many times we get caught up in the “daily grind” and go through the motions of what is needed to be done.  Don’t let yourself forget the big picture.  Examine what you want to accomplish, review your goals…and if you have none, stop and take the time to write them.  How else can you achieve if you have nothing to strive for?

Lisa Von Domek - I hope I am that guy building a cathedral. He sees the big picture and his importance in this world.

A team works better than a person, isn't it?

Hi Lisa... I do believe that part of the human natures is that at different times in our lives we are all 1, 2, and 3.

I must have a split personality because I vote for all three.

Lisa I would like to think I am a #3, but there are a lot of #1's and #2's in this world.

Let's hope that all of your readers are in the building mode.

Depending on the day, I'm all three. Pour some wine, I'm definitely #3
