    Quoted from pintechev:

    1) Don't fix things that aren't broken; you often make things worse...

    +1

    My first idea is usually wrong. So I don't try fixing something immediately after noticing it isn't working. I like to think on it for a few days... Look through the manual... Read some Pinside... Think some more. Ideally I like come up with a logical explanation for why the thing stopped working before I dig in.

    Never set a time table. Just when you think you're making progress, you'll spend three hours removing a screw.
