Discussion on: What clean means and why you should care

I haven't finished reading Clean Code... There are so many good coding books and so little time. But sometimes I feel I get stuck in analysis paralysis trying to make my code clean and functions only do one thing.

I feel like I start with Clean Coder intention and end with "I just need to finish this by the deadline"... I end up racking up a lot of technical debt. Future/Present day Tora is always cursing Past Tora for the swiping the Technical Debt credit card.

I do feel with experience, I have gotten better with writing clean code up front, but I always worry that things will get messy as deadlines get arbitrarily set for me.
