For example, bounded contexts are an explicit acknowledgement of the need to confine our intensive modelling within a modest scope. And within that modest scope, we iterate toward refinement, sometimes having insights along the way that lead to much deeper, more elegant models ... but only sometimes, and unpredictably. Good designs always have flaws. And losing a pragmatic, balanced view of all this makes projects slow! Paradoxically, moving slowly means less exploration, less iteration and therefore worse design.
This has happened to most serious designers. It has happened to me. This balance doesn't usually happen without conscious attention, and it helps to have some concrete techniques for making well-designed, imperfect software. We can also shift our mindset to produce better designs by avoiding the pitfalls of idealism.
