Better and No Worse
Improve your code like a ratchet; one click at a time without getting worse.

Commit changes before they are “good.” Commit the first thing that is a tiny bit better and no worse than what was there before.
The Value Proposition
Committing early and often provides the following value:

- Reduce ratholing.
Ensuring each commit is no worse provides the following value:

- Bias towards action.
- Get easy permission to refactor.
