I agree somewhat.

Sometimes performance requirements are obvious before you even start coding. Eg a high volume website that needs to be sensible with resources. However, I'd be preaching that the perf baked in should be at the architecture level, not the line-by-line optimisation level. ie Settle on a server framework that's been proven to be fast; bake in caching; make sensible database design decisions. I wouldn't be optimising your sorting routines just yet, though.

I 100% agree with not bringing in any technology until it's needed. We've had many, many projects fail because they were over engineered / overly complex. Instead of prototyping in Python, or building a monolithic prototype in .NET Core, systems were using literally dozens of frameworks and technologies spread over dozens of web services and 90% of the efforts ended up in DevOps, not Dev. Instead of focusing on the goal, the focus was on the projects.

The one point I will differ with you is that incomplete requirements don't faze me that much. We had a recent project that failed because a year was spent analysing requirements. If we'd just thrown something out there, played around and then worked out what the actual real world requirements were, we'd be far ahead. Instead we tried to predict the future. There's a point where you hold your breath and jump.
