Don't Wait

Don't Wait. Michael Harrison, an English poet, was once asked how to become a good writer. He replied, “If you want to be a good writer, write. You don't wait for inspiration.”

Don Box, co-author of SOAP, gives similar advice in the above link:

  • Read fewer specifications,
  • write more applications,
  • write less code by using tools that generate code automatically,
  • and remember that humans matter, so if you must write a specification, make it legible.

And John's advice is: “You can be hasty, but keep a backup!”  [PHP Everywhere]
