You build a dream house.
You start with a dream. The dream becomes a plan. The plan becomes a lot of dirty work. The dirty work becomes a house. If you are successful, it is the house of your dreams.
Dream, plan, dirty work, success. Why is this the fundamental strategy of all human endeavor? Because it is the story of the universe. This is the way humans were Intended to be.
