We asked this question this morning in a meeting. It was very interesting to me what we came up with. You can either work for a person, for an instituation or organization, or for a vision. I can say that I work for my boss. I work for San Diego Christian College. I work to make a difference in the world for Christ. I really liked the distinction. I tried thinking about how I would answer that. How do you think my boss wants me to answer that question?
A little later, we were working through a different issue, and the issue boiled down to working for a person. Working for a person and more importantly, thinking only about who works for me misses the bigger picture and bigger vision of what we’re trying to do. At the end of the day, it’s not about me.
