Why is this here?
This is the question we must always ask ourselves - why am I doing this now, why is this artifact here, etc? It's more efficient to spend some time to analyze what the next important task in our project is and define the point on the horizon towards which all activity and thought will converge for a given time-limited iteration will converge. This is the freakin management, development, and creative zeitgeist of the late 20th century. Agile development, Scrum, "Getthing Things Done", the E-Myth, it's all saying the same thing: get out of your own way and focus. Use the power of disciplinary thinking to your advantage - it is effective.
