You got the idea because:

I use a bit different rule of thumb:
Whenever I write whatever kind of code and have to think about it
for more than a few seconds, I put a meaningful comment next to it
about what I had in mind (usually just a hint to point me into the
right direction when I read the code later again).

For example:

# remove icon
rm icon.png

# there is a system default icon
rm icon.png
