The flow chart has no branches. It has been optimized, by pruning branches which cannot apply. Are you consulting a flow chart cannot be answered no while consulting the flow chart, so the entire branch structure resulting from a no answer has been eliminated. However, there are many other ways in which premature optimization can take place, and there are some optimizations which are not premature, so this is a robust and fruit laden branch. Since it would be handy to keep that branch in mind, its removal is clearly premature. Therefore, this flowchart has been prematurely optimized. 11:02, 8 June 2016 (UTC)

I guess that as soon as you are spending time on a flow chart on this question you are not using your time to do things right...--Kynde (talk) 11:11, 8 June 2016 (UTC)

Is this also an implicit reference to (Is It Worth the Time)?Dani (talk) 11:44, 8 June 2016 (UTC)
