Great Leadership With Jacob Morgan

We keep hearing about this concept of passion and whether or not you should follow your passion.

It reminds me of a story about a man who visits a construction site.

As he's going around the construction site, he sees a bunch of people working.

He asks the first person what they do there. And the man responds that he lays bricks.

He asks the second person, who says he is building a wall.

He asks the third person, who says he is building a cathedral.

I love this story because it's an example of three people who are doing the exact same thing with totally different mindsets.

It's not that the person building a cathedral is passionate about what he's doing, it's the fact that he's bringing his passion with him to whatever he does.

And that I think, is a far more scalable and realistic approach.

Don’t follow your passion. Instead, bring your passion with you.
