From Daniel Keys Moran’s blog:
There’s more than one right way to perform most tasks … but there are an infinite number of ways to perform a task incorrectly.
DKM is a programmer and science fiction author. While Moran was talking about programming and writing in this post, the principle certainly seems to apply just anything (including running a small business). I’ve never read any of Moran’s work, but was given Emerald Eyes last night, which I’m really looking forward to reading. For those who are curious about his work, much of it is available for free in pdf and rtf form.
