5. There’s an old parable about the three bricklayers. They’re laying bricks all morning, and when they finally get a break, one guy asks the other two, “Why are you doing this job?” The first guy says, “I’m doing it for the wages.” The second guy says, “I’m doing it for my wife and kids.” The third guy looks up at what they’ve been constructing all morning, which is a church — a place to get in touch with one’s highest self — and says, “I’m helping to build a cathedral.” Now, most people hear this parable, and they think the third guy has the right answer, and the first two guys have the wrong answer. That’s the simplistic lesson that most people jump to, led their by their mythic notions of calling. But that is not the lesson of the parable.

What’s next? So, what are we to do? If the business case isn’t working, what other arrows do we have in our quiver? The answer is in taking principled action.
