in reply to Coding to a deadline - why it is just like hunting bears.

Make a list of small jobs.

I use this too. The biggest thing I think it helps with is it allows you to delegate projects to others (I've never seen a team with a balanced workload) or helps you switch to a parallel task when you're stuck on another one.

I don't really understand the psychology of it, but sometimes working on something else helps me figure out the solution to the original problem.

Great analogy. Thanks for sharing it.
