      How about "Only bite off as much as you could chew (of the last
      bite)".

        What about the ne plus ultra rule?

        [Latin n pls ultr, (go) no more beyond (this point): n, no + pls, more +
        ultr, , beyond.]

        Everyone loves Latin, right?

        There is a rule that says "only commit for tomorrow what you actually
        accomplished today". This works at the level of teams committing to an
        iteration's worth of stories, or an individual committing to an iteration's
        worth of tasks. What's the name of this rule (a la Weinberg's "Secrets of
        Consulting" rules)?
