#37 Gold Plating
We want to create something great. We really do. Typically though, time and resources are limited and so we must put them to the best possible use.
‘Gold Plating’ happens when we go too far with a part of our system and consequently end up investing time that could be better spent elsewhere. This can happen at every level: Project managers might have ideas for a feature that they desperately want to get implemented before wrapping it up. Engineers might have an idea to improve the code that they are excited to implement.
When perfect becomes the enemy of good the project will usually suffer.
