Software is not art!

Software is not a piece of art, produced in a way that the artist feels is perfection. Software developers should think of software as providing solutions to users that users desire primarily for increasing their productivity. So, instead of spending three days to figure out how to override the default colors on windows controls so that they all match, instead spend that three days adding a logging framework, or an export to excel. Let the customer determine which features are more important to them. You will learn that they often prefer to keep bugs that they can tolerate if provides you time to add a new feature they really want.
