Today, I was thinking a lot about agility, more in a broader sense. I Was rereading some articles that I bookmarked and some book notes I made. Here are a few quotes, tips that stuck with me today: (sorry forgot to note the authors)

"To move fast, Expect to make foot faults. I'm okay with an error rate of 10 to 20%—times when I would have made a different decision in a given situation—if it means you can move fast."

"Always demand a deadline. A deadline weeds out the extraneous and the ordinary. It prevents you from trying to make it perfect, so you have to make it different. Different is better."

"To make something good, just do it. To make something great, just re-do it, re-do it, re-do it. The secret to making fine things is in remaking them."

"Be prepared: When you are 90% done any large project (a house, a film, an event, an app), the rest of the myriad details will take a second 90% to complete."

"Art is in what you leave out."
