I recently received a friend request on Facebook from a high school acquaintance. As I was looking over her profile to see what she's been up to, I was struck by her job title, "Building Roads."

When people ask you what you do, do you fire off a fancy but esoteric-sounding job title like "Director of Special Projects"? Or do you "build roads"? 

Would you feel more fulfilled in your career if you thought of yourself as a "road builder"?
