RE: The Door Sign

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I also read a similar saying in an engineering magazine and have had it
posted in my office ever since:

"Good, fast, cheap - pick only two"

I claim that all of my work is intended to be "good" so that leaves only
"fast or cheap" to choose from.
