Quote of the Day: There are a thousand different ways to do this.

When I was in the Navy, I was a medic supporting a platoon of Marines. I remember clearly sitting on a ridge overlooking the urban combat training facility in Camp Pendleton. In the “city” were hundreds of bad guys. On the ridge were hundreds of Marines.

Everyone had a plan, and they all involved doing something right now. But the sergeant that everyone really respected and listened to said something I’ll never forget. He said, “There are a thousand different ways to do this. Problem is, 999 of them are wrong.”

The same can be said of programming.
