Trees are my friend, even if they're just logical ones

When confronted with a monumental project, there's nothing quite like breaking it down into as many medium-level problems as you can, then sketching out the dependencies between them. The result still looks huge, but suddenly it looks *tractable*, with a lot more clarity of where the critical path is. I've had this huge bundle in my head for weeks, but only when I sit down and list each task and its preconditions does it become crystal-clear where we hit the bottleneck in the process, after which we can parallelize the heck out of the rest of development...
