Day 12: Analysis Paralysis

Well, today wasn’t a good day! At least yesterday I built a feature and tore it down and learnt a few lessons.

Sprymesh is fully functional and is 90% complete. However, the remaining 90% work still needs to be done. And it is very hard to maintain focus and motivation.

I am a huge fan of Better Call Saul and have been putting off watching the finale for quite some time. I have been having a blast building sprymesh and blogging about it. However, today wasn’t one of those days. Today, I dragged my feet through the day without making any real progress. And spent the last part of the day watching the finale. Well at least that part is wrapped up.

I always tell myself that the difference between a professional and an amateur is that the professional does the work even when doesn’t feel like doing it. Whereas the amateur does it only when he feels like doing it. I don’t want to be an amateur. However, it is tough. Anyway, I hope to find better ways to get back on the horse on days like these.

Maybe I should build a simple throw away fun project on days like these? How do you deal with days when you don’t feel like working? I’d love to hear your thoughts. Also, I’d love to hear your comments and feedback on sprymesh. Everybody needs motivation.
