Physical vs. Digital / by Evan Troxel

Do you feel the same way I do about how much more rewarding it is to physically work with your hands (blue collar) rather than sitting behind a desk in a cubicle (white collar)? Then you would enjoy reading the book Shop Class as Soul Craft (Amazon link). It's about the value of physical labor and how it sharpens your problem solving skills much more than desk work. There is literally no place I'd rather be than in my studio workshop making something. That's where I'm happiest.

If that sounds like too much right now, start with this short article. Highly recommended.
