Don't sweat the petty things.
















And don't pet the sweaty things.

It is all petty stuff.

For any programmers, make it work, make it right, make it fast.


I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that ...

And for the Engineering Managers: Good, Fast, Cheap. Pick two.

There is never time to do it right the first time, but there always seems to be time to do it over.

To be stupid and selfish and to have good health are the three requirements for happiness, though if stupidity is lacking, the others are useless.

It seems to go with good, fast, cheap: Pick two.

Managers often pick fast and cheap - and end up paying more later when it has to be made into good (when it will be both expensive and slow because it wasn't done good the first time).

Never argue with an idiot, because people watching lose track of which is which.

Grandma sez!
If at first you don't succeed try, try, again!
If you still don't succeed try, try, again!
If you STILL don't succeed
GIVE UP - quit being so D*** bullheaded about it!
