    Number 1 and Number 11 seem to be contradicting each other, but I suppose you could interpret #1 as saying “Don’t just say ‘I’ll fix it later’, but write it down.”

      Whenever I encounter a situation like this, or a feature improvement that would be good in this spot, I always write a TODO, which is what #1 is saying. You need to keep track of these things or they’ll get lost.

      Also, when on teams, I try to promote the format # TODO(sfz-): thing to do 2017-04-25 so that if someone has time to pick any up, they know who to contact for details or whether the issue might be stale or irrelevant.

        The problem with that is people sometimes leave the organization. A slightly better version is to include an ID for your issue-tracking system that has more details.
