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. We elevate the importance of thoughts and ideas and diminish the role of hands and body and breath.
Problem is, there is a profound and nourishing joy that comes from the very visceral, physical process of making things you can touch and feel. Working with your hands to transform raw materials into something finished and tangible. Something you can touch and feel and be in the presence of and interact with in real space. This process of physical making gives us access to a place that knowledge work rarely does.
That’s what today’s Good Life Project Riff is all about.
