  • Perfect is the enemy of good. Often 20% of the effort will produce 80% of the desired result (the Pareto Principle).
  • The devil is in the details. Make a proof-of-concept to ensure that you haven't overlooked a detail that will derail your project.
  • Hofstadter's Law: It always takes longer than you expect, even when you take into account Hofstadter's Law.
  • Capers Jones: High-quality software is not expensive. High-quality software is faster and cheaper to build and maintain than low-quality software, from initial development all the way through total cost of ownership.
