“Technical debt is a concept in software development that reflects the implied cost of additional rework caused by choosing an easy (limited) solution now, instead of using a better approach that would take longer.”
If you choose, you can read the full Wikipedia entry.
But in short, the longer you postpone doing things *correctly, the greater debt you accrue – significantly increasing the risk of mild to catastrophic failures in your ultimate objectives. And the cost/effort to correct the problem and “pay the debt” increases the longer it persists – akin to accruing interest.
In this episode, Gary Kleiban and I discuss technical debt and this relates to individual player development. Specifically, how far behind American players generally are, and if we can possibly catch up to the best players and nations in the world.
