Some of the good principles and ideas gathered over the years from IT or life:
“Invest (time, money, energy, effort etc.) into solving a problem according to its gravity. Already existing tools, frameworks etc. can often be a very good solution”.
A try-fail-recover cycle is natural and success comes from making it as short as possible.

“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!”
“Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.” (Eleanor Roosevelt)
“It’s better to try and fail, than to fail to try.”
Always start with the KISS approach: “Keep It Simple, Stupid!”
“Real generosity toward the future lies in giving all to the present.” (Albert Camus)
