I am glad you are strict enough with yourself to follow your formal training. However for the many people out there I imagine it is hard to stick with The Right Way(tm) to do it when faced with time-line pressures or simply laziness. While the benefits of doing it The Right Way(tm) far out weigh the initial time invested that doesn't make it any easier to stick to it. Adopting a mind set of
"How will this effect me X days from now?"
"When I revisit this code in X (days|weeks|years) will I remember that I was thinking?"
"Will someone else find this to be The Right Way(tm) and if so why?"
then we can help ourselves to improve. For those of us that aren't blessed with strictness we can only hope that over time we stay commited to refining our process until our actions follow The Right Way(tm) without being forced.
