Whose House Are You Building?
You Need to Build Your Own House
Here at Big Sky Collision Center in Billings, we have one passion: to train leaders. Those leaders then take ownership of their career, and the result is that you have outstanding work done on your vehicle after you have been involved in an accident. These leaders have taken the initiative to build their own house.
Wait, you’re wondering what it means to build your own house? Let’s take a step back for a minute and see what it means to build your own house.
Chop Wood Carry Water
In 2015 Joshua Medcalf’s book, Chop Wood Carry Water, was published. The book is an easy 100 or so pages that walks you through how to fall in love with the process of becoming great. At the beginning there is a story:
A home builder that is fantastic at his job is approaching the end of his career. Every house he has built has been meticulous in its construction, and he is known throughout the land for building amazing homes. When he goes to his boss and says he wants to retire, his boss praises him for his great work, and tells him he has to build just one more home. The builder, however, had his heart set on retiring and reluctantly agrees. The home doesn’t receive the attention he usually gives, and the quality of the work suffers. After it is complete he goes back to his boss and asks to retire. His boss hands him a box, inside the box is a key, the boss proclaims that the last house he built was his own retirement gift. The builder is now dismayed that he slacked off building his own house.
Obviously this is a condensed version, but the book is highly recommended. Just head over to Amazon and pick it up, it will only cost you about $12 ($5.38 if you get the kindle version).
So, when you look at your work, whose house are you building?
