Quote: Complexity Creep

Complexity creep is something that should be fought tooth and nail where ever you find it. It’s the biggest enemy of keeping your code maintainable. As soon as you feel that you’re losing track of what is going on you need to step back and re-think your approach and re-factor. If you don’t then in the long term you’ll lose control completely. It’s not a matter of ‘if’ but ‘when’ and by the time ‘when’ rolls around you will end up wishing you had taken care of the problem when it was still tractable. Short term thinking on long term projects is not an option. @jacquesm, link
