His mission

(he chose to accept it)
Build the right thing the first time
Justin is great at staying focused on a requirement/scope. It's easy to jump down rabbit holes after things that look broken. Justin has been great at allowing some discussion in pairing sessions, attempting to validate—but also drawing a metaphorical line around "extra credit" or "something for later"—and then coming back to priorities.
