I’ve come to a conclusion. Best practices are called best practices for a reason. Having spent the good part of the last two days working on other people’s web sites where they did not follow best practices, I am firmly in the camp of following best practices. (No, no rewards for how many times I can say “best practices” in one post, I promise!)

I was talking to my dad this afternoon and it seems that best practices extend far beyond the world of web design. They are in the middle of remodeling their kitchen right now and the previous remodelers did not follow best practices when installing tile, cabinets, etc.

As we live our lives, are we following best practices? Are we eating right? Are we growing our relationship with God? Are we moving?

As we start this year, what are some best practices that you either want to follow or are following?
