If You Want to Succeed, Do This.  

Success is not just about knowing what to do. It is about doing it.

Finding God in the Grain  

There’s something about working with your hands that changes you. Over the last generation, we’ve shifted largely to a “knowledge economy.” We value and compensate cognitive intelligence on a much higher scale than artistic, mechanical and physical intelligence.
