One of the things that has stuck with me from my Perl days is the magic of TMTOWTDI; There’s more than one way to do it.
Too much time gets spent going back and forth on minor details when that time would have been better spent getting more things done. Don’t get caught up implementation details if they are not important.
On the other hand, consistency is not bad. This is why coding standards are useful. This is also why the Perl community eventually adopted TIMTOWTDIBSCINABTE; There’s more than one way to do it, but sometimes consistency is not a bad thing either.
