Do you have any thought about the nature of your personnel problem?

It probably won't even end up being a Permie-type person (unless they're REALLY self-disciplined), because we get too distracted trying to build stuff and grow plants

They want to be out on the property, growing things, building things, getting their hands dirty while under that Big Sky sun.

So what I hear Paul describing in the OP is that he wants to create more content. I'm biased of course, though I think he's really rather brilliant at creating content (writing, podcasts, videos, forums!!, etc.). It makes sense to me that he'd love to do more of that.
And as for doing things under the Big Sky sun, I've heard Paul express that he wants to see some of his content and theories come to life here at wheaton labs. Though it's rather impossible to create the things he wants to create all by himself. (I think it would be impossible for anyone to create "all the things" all by themself, unless they dedicated decades upon decades...) So there are layers upon layers of how the content fits with real life/meat space.
