Manual labor and knowledge labor complement each other well.
Too much of either and your left feeling burnt out and fatigued. Too much of either and the work becomes a grid.
They each bring a different flavor of tiredness and reward. The burning of muscle and of a hard days work. The satisfaction of creative problem-solving.
There’s got to be balance and counterbalance in everything we do. Even good things can lose their meaning and benefits if they are consumed in excess.
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
