TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.

I had a boss once who loved to spew such wisdom. Problem was, he was so busy
collecting and disseminating his wisdom, he never found a way to implement all
that wisdom and please customers.
Aphorisms are swell for post-coital giggling, but you have to be able to turn
all that wisdom into action. Otherwise, you might as well sit atop the mountain
and preach to the rocks.
Here's my favorite aphorisms:
1. Get back to work, you!
2. Work harder, not smarter.
