Getting the Big picture

I am happy to share a nice story told by a senior people in our company.

The story starts like this, a curious journalist wandering along the roadside. He saw some people working in a construction site. He went to some people and asked a question.

The question is "What you are working at?"

First person said that he was laying bricks.

Second one said that he was constructing a wall.

Third one said "I am building my nation".

The journalist wondered and asked him to explain. The worker said, "We are constructing a bridge and using the bridge the two ends will get better connectivity thereby commerce will improve and finally my nation's economic growth will increase."

Among the three workers the third one gave a big picture (goal) of what he is doing.

Similarly we should be aware of "What we are really doing?".
