It’s tempting to try lots of fixes at once to save time:

Illustration of a smiling stick figure with curly hair.
dream: I’m going to add Z, and replace X with Y, and improve C– that’ll definitely fix it!

Illustration of the same stick figure, now sad.
reality: … now there’s a new problem AND it’s still broken
