Say “no” by default
When dealing with software development, the urge to add every feature asked for is almost impossible to resist…
“Can it do such-and-such?”
“Sure, I’ll add that this week”
Bad idea. With that attitude comes bloat, incoherent interfaces and other nasties.
Steve Jobs, speaking about innovation in a recent interview said “…but itÃ¢Â€Â™s only by saying no that you can concentrate on the things that are really important.”
I like that.
