Tricks Only Work Once

As a tester, your tricks should only work once.

Every technique you apply is a "trick". It's a tool, or a way of looking at things, or a specific test design mechanism. Each trick should only work once. If it works multiple times, then you're not teaching your developers to properly learn from the bugs you find.

The good news is, this keeps you having to come up with new tricks. And new tricks find new (and old!) bugs.

Just a thought.
