The 90-50 Rule

By Deane Barker • Posted on November 18, 2004 • Filed under implementations

I have a new rule of thumb for Web development: the 90-50 rule. This rule comes into effect when you get 90% done with a project…and only have 50% left to do.

The details are what kill you, and they trail on forever, it seems. So, when you’re 90% done, remember the 90-50 rule, and know that you’re really only 50% done.

I didn’t make the rule, I’m merely pointing out the obvious.
