One way of looking at the world is that we spend a lot of our time building stuff. I sit in meetings with computer engineers and developers who are spending their days building one part of the Internet. It’s really a new version of an old task. Some people are building families, some are researching, some are creating.
We work and live in many buildings that were built by people long ago, and we’re all living atop a giant construction project of knowledge, learning, truths, art, and literature that was built for us by the people who came before.
I have special fondness for people who spend their entire day building, who not only work during the day, but also spend their free time trying to build something lasting for the world.
What are you building?
