fighting the lack of good ideas

the two things

I recently came across “The Two Things“, a somewhat old, but possibly still accurate (or at least humorous look) at a variety of topics.

You know, the Two Things. For every subject, there are really only two things you really need to know. Everything else is the application of those two things, or just not important.

It’s got me wondering – if you had to give The Two Things about your job/field, what would they be?

And – if you had to describe your whole job in a tweet (<= 140 characters), could you do it?
