New year resolutions?

Been busy with work for the last few days. No matter how much i try not to get office work to home, i end up working on office stuff. But i have decided just now that coming new year, i’ll no longer do office stuff at home no matter how urgent it is or how important it is. This is on the top of the list in my new year resolution(s).

It is high time i spend some time on things that i want to do. I am thinking about an app for the cricket world cup that is starting this february. Planning to launch it through vivaciousgames.com . Will love to do it as a weekend challenge.  Hopefully we’ll be able to see it for the India/South Africa one day matches. Fingers crossed!

The Magic Triangle of software development

Magic Triangle

quoted from the above post.

“While it’s rare anyone would intentionally sacrifice quality, you’ll commonly hear “I want feature W, X, Y & Z and I want them yesterday” with no thought to tomorrow. They will cut it every time without even realizing it.  Every time a CTO says yes to this request the world becomes a slightly worse place.”

Looks like i am one of those guys who is making the world a ‘slightly’ worse place :( Need to work on that!

How can a startup deal with this? Does it focus on more features or fixed schedules?
