I once thought that I could show people how I do things and that that would allow them to do what I do. It doesn't seem to really work like that, does it? You have to be smart and well-trained, and smart enough to train yourself when need be ... and then be in circumstances where it is possible to do the work. (A frequent commentator on this blog, the profacero blogger, has been saying this to me for years.) The advice only works once you are there, but isn't it superfluous then? Usually, when someone has benefitted from any help from me, it is because they were already where they needed to be, and just needed to know it was possible for them to have an active research program with tangible results.
Of course, I can look at what you write and give you a critique, tell you how to make it better, but that is editing, not "advice."
It isn't about work ethic or time management, even. I will be the first to tell you I am lazy and disorganized.
