For individual projects -- all of them. It's good to know what folks have established as good ideas, but the ideas should be applied as a result of evaluating the costs & benefits for your particular case. i.e thought-driven development.

And honestly, for many projects, cargo cult programming will probably get you through, and it'll save you from having to do too much thinking, but it's far from the most direct route.
