I can still remember as a child listening to The Three Little Pigs. From the bellowing wolf to the squealing pigs, it is a story that captivates children.
As I now read it to my own kids, I hope to teach them the merits of planning, enterprise and good old-fashioned hard work, albeit through the questionable tack of terrifying them with the harrowing tale of a hungry wolf.
In the end, the pigs learned their lesson and we listeners agreed: Do things the right way and build for the long-term, even when there are easier alternatives or short-term gains.
And we still agree. Right?
