Usage Instructions

What’s really angering about instructions […] is that they imply there’s only one way […] their way. And that presumption wipes out all the creativity. Actually there are hundreds of ways […] and when they make you follow just one way without showing you the overall problem the instructions become hard to follow in such a way as not to make mistakes. You lose feeling for the work. And not only that, it’s very unlikely that they’ve told you the best way.

Apologies to Mr. Pirsig.
