Good ways to overcomplicate your code and slow down development

All good ones. One of the problems with RAD tools is that they make
the task of prototyping a bit too easy. I find myself whipping up a
prototype as a proof of concept and then start building an app from
there without having thoroughly thought out the game plan ahead of
time. And then I'm at the point where I don't really want to toss out
what I've built and start from scratch, so I end up spending time
refactoring, reengineering, and patching. And then sometimes reworking
things from scratch anyway.
