Research tips

Being a skill researcher takes practice.  Most researchers begin with a large topic and then narrow down to the exact content they wish.  It is similar to sculpting or woodworking.  You begin with either a lump of clay or piece of wood or in this case a subject you are interested in.  You then begin to consider how you want to figure out what you like and dislike about it.  You carve out what you dislike and keep what you like.
