Perhaps it’s worth throwing it out today
If you’re considering putting an unmarked key into a drawer filled with keys, you’re better off simply throwing it out instead.
Not only won’t you be able to find that unmarked key when you need it, but you’ve just made it more difficult to sort the other keys as well.
We hesitate to embrace or announce failure right now, preferring to put it off to some indeterminate date in the future. But postponing the announcement isn’t the same as not failing. It simply makes things worse later. And being clear about the failure we’re about to cause someday makes it more likely we’ll do the work to avoid it.
If you don’t have time to do it right, you’re unlikely to have time to do it over.
No sense wasting tomorrow as well.
