Good advice about whining:

Whining should be telling you something. Whining is the white smoke in your tailpipe that lets you know you’re burning mental oil. It means you’re unconsciously devoting cycles to something that you can’t, won’t, or shouldn’t be spending time thinking about. Otherwise, why would it be bothering you, right? You’d be either extricated or done with it.

This jibes nicely with one of Stefan Sagmeister’s Things I Have Learned In My Life So Far:

Complaining is silly. Either act or forget.
