There were once three builders. They had very different approaches to building. Each builder thought that his approach was the best.
Builder one had many great ideas. He would dream about the places he was going to build. Everyone loved his ideas. They spoke about him and told others what a great builder he was. But builder one never built a single building. He was too busy telling others about his ideas. He died in poverty.
Builder two was passionate about building. His motto in life was to “Just do it!” Every morning, he woke up and went out to collect bricks. He had little money, so he would collect bricks anywhere he could find them. He would then drive them to his building site where he would dump them in a heap. This was hard work and he never really had time to build. But he was a man of great faith. He believed that if he faithfully collected the bricks and did his part with passion, the building would eventually be built. Builder two, however, died without having built a single building. After his death, a thief collected his bricks and put them to another use.
