To which I reply:
So, if you enjoy learning, pursue learning. If you enjoy other
things, do them instead. At the end (which may come sooner than
you expect), all the enjoyment of your life will be done.
There are no more chances after that. You don't get to make up
for what you put off. You don't get to take anything with
you, cuz there ain't no more you.
Techwhirl tie-in..... oh.... jeez.....
Um, if you're a real techwriter, you enjoy learning and then
making what you learn accessible and convenient for other
people. Like a teacher -- which you may well be -- you get
a kick out of the "Aha!" response, but don't always have
to observe it in person. :-)
Or, put another way... you cling to the absurd-on-the-face-of-it
notion that somebody, somewhere actually Reads The Fine Manual.
Learning doesn't need to be formal. Neither does teaching.
Neither does enjoyment.
