Summary

True mastery of creating knowledge with documents comes when you can quickly create high quality documents that persuasively argue for points you need to make. To create high quality documents, they must be well organized, and points you make must be supported effectively. To create such documents quickly, you need to consistently reuse your previous work so that after you painstakingly wordsmithed phrases, paragraphs, and pages, you can leverage them through reuse.
