Different ways of looking at what you are making

This morning I came across the following story. It was used in the context of business but I think it applies nicely to many other aspects of life.

A man stopped by a building site and asked the first man what he was making.“I’m laying stones,” said the man, and went back to his work.

He moved to the second man and asked him what he was making.“About $5 per hour,” remarked the man, and got back to work.

The man came to the third man and asked him what he was making.
The man smiled, threw his arms in a wide arc and beamed, “I’m building a Cathedral!”

Life in a family of gifted people is not always straighforward and navigating a path can at times feel like a rollercoaster ride, but as often as you can, and with as much gusto as you can muster, "look up every now and again and think about what you’re making."
