Ever get stuck there?
Working on a big project and 2 issues have somehow arisen for me:
1. There are so many ways to build things, and I find myself "worrying" about doing it the correct (read: best way possible) and am thus making myself stagnant. I am in this rut of wanting to be sure it is perfect, as if that is possible. This code will be responsible for running hundreds of sites, but what if I make mistakes and it is not the best it can be?
2. Bouncing around on sub-tasks. This may be related to the larger anxiety issue above, I cannot get traction on any task because I start to think of another aspect to address. "Oh, maybe i'll try this!" Then bounce over there for 10 minutes before thinking, "hmm, what about this..."
Now, I am not new to this industry, been doing this going on 10 years now, I have no idea why this suddenly surfaced. Has anyone else dealt with similar circumstances? What do you do to traverse them? Would love to hear your thoughts.
#2 is more self discipline than anything. If you worked out a design in #1, follow the design. Don't deviate unless you find clear problems with the method you are following. Bouncing around can be useful at times, but if you are not actually completing code, you'll never be able to release it.
