Here's an idea.

DO IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME

Don't do a half-assed job on the code because some Uncle Bob told you that unit tests are more important.

Don't leave work unfinished; tell your manager to cancel 3/4 of the recurring meetings so you have time to do your work.

And stop with the "technical debt" and the "stories" and the "refactoring" and speak in plain, clear English.
