Maybe we’re too caught up on efficiency. We spend our lives fine-tuning our ability to make money – which is a good thing – but then we use that money to avoid doing some of the only things in a human life that can provide actual fulfillment. We pay someone else to raise and teach our children. We pay someone to build our home, and then someone else to heat them. We pay others to manufacture our Christmas trees. On the one hand, we passionately believe that work is a good thing, and important. But we’ve fallen prey to a philosophy that holds work as a means to an end, not an end in itself. We’ve forgotten that good work – hard work – is in itself fulfilling. Build something. Chop some wood. See if I am wrong.

Hello! I am the creator of WPSessions.com. I've been building websites since 1998, developing with WordPress since 2007, and training and leading development teams since 2011. I’ve had the opportunity to work with many amazing WordPress agencies and experts over these last several years. These relationships have allowed me to help develop sites for Cornell, Microsoft, Disney, TIME, YMCA, and numerous others. My real passion, though, is for self-directed learning and helping others develop skills and workflows to better solve important and complicated problems. I can’t resist helping good people do great things! (Also, rzen is pronounced "risen", as in "He is risen") View all posts by Brian Richards
