Premature design

We just hired a contractor to help out with my project until we can hire someone permanently. I'm having trouble keeping him focused on the coding needs of the present. He wants to look forward, design for the future, and revisit existing design decisions that are well beyond the scope of the project. I admire the breadth of his thinking, but I find the lack of his faith in YAGNI disturbing.

Any suggestions?
