1. Write the test
2. Run the test - make sure it fails
3. write code until test passes
4. Stop writing code
People underestimate the importance of steps 2 and 4. Number 2 is
important because a test that can't fail is worse than useless. Number
4 is important because it prevents code that doesn't have a
corresponding test. If you feel the need to write more code then go
back to step 1.
And run all of your tests every day. You will sleep better at night.
