"Murphy was an optimist!"

As I stare at my monitors listening to the hvac’s compressor, the whine of my case fan (please be the case fan and not the cpu fan!), the dog chasing the cat, and the otherwise still quiet of the night, my stomach knots in anticipation of a horrid week ahead. I have allowed projects to run overdue. Being late on a project is the world’s worst feeling for me. I want to beat myself up hard for the reasons that they may be behind but that self-deprecating behavior only serves to reducing my productivity so I avoid the would have, should have, could haves and push on optimistically reminding myself that a project ends when it meets all the client’s requirements and not when it is the perfect piece of artwork. Coding is art. And artists can easily find their pieces needing "just one more change" endlessly. Time to close these projects out.
