Refactoring: How to deal with technical debt and save your sanity!

Refactoring code may not have any innate business value ( an exception being small performance optimization) and your business won’t immediately get better once refactoring is done. But refactoring is an essential part of software development and frequent refactoring is what keeps the code well oiled to prevent it from going obsolete.
