Avoid Over-Engineering

Design and implement solutions that are needed today; do not invest in capabilities or features that may never be needed.  While this may require more effort tomorrow, time is more often wasted by investing in requirements that change or become irrelevant.  Building for tomorrow will likely slow down delivery for today.  Keep your codebase as small as possible.  This will promote simplicity of design, implementation, and validation.
