> it often destroys my motivation to finish what I started

Shit code, mine or others, highly motivates me. To refactor/fix it. To the point I have a really hard time making targeted, single purpose commits.

Because I have pride in my work, concern for the dev who has to maintain this shit after me, and understand costs of technical debt.
