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?
