Build: (v) to construct something by putting parts or material together
What should the question be?
Is it what I build?
How I build?
Where I build?
When I build?
Or why I build?
Let’s start with why I build.
I build because there’s a need. There’s an absence of a landmark which proclaims an important truth.
When I build.
Two ingredients are always necessary–labor and money. If people are not motivated to build, the money will quickly be eaten up. If the money is not available, the labor will be disgruntled.
How should I build?
Without strife. I’ve seen people begin projects and absolutely destroy their relationships just because the deadline or the goal superseded the appreciation of one another.
Where should I build?
There’s an axiom that something built on rock will last longer than something built on sand. Sometimes we build on sand because we think what we built will be so appreciated that there won’t be any attacks against it. That’s a mistake. Our building should be able to withstand the onslaught of nature and critics.
And finally, what we build.
We should always build to sufficiency, with a vision for growth. We should never place a one-acre building on a one-acre property. There’s no place to go. But we should never be ashamed of a humble beginning. The secret to success is not to begin big, but rather, realistically, so people can constantly see our growth.
Yes, what should we build?
What is it we need?
