Focus on what is important.
Parkinson's Law is usually quoted as "The work expands to fill the time available." This is a slightly different take on the law. Maybe Parkinson's corollary. Why should I care what color the bikeshed is?
The really, really short answer is that you should not. The somewhat longer answer is that just because you are capable of building a bikeshed does not mean you should stop others from building one just because you do not like the color they plan to paint it. This is a metaphor indicating that you need not argue about every little feature just because you know enough to do so. Some people have commented that the amount of noise generated by a change is inversely proportional to the complexity of the change.

Essentially, don't let the little things grow out of proportion, just because they are "easy" to manipulate. This example focuses on the color of a bike shed, when the real question is the building of a power plant. I have seen the same thing happen at budget time, when top management focus on a minscule line item while giving the big items short shrift.
