    The other weird motivation thing I've found is that often I freak out the most about the least difficult thing. It'll blow up into a horrendous nightmare in my head and I'll be paralyzed every time I think about tackling it. But when I do it, it turns out to be dead simple.

    Most recent case: calculating the royalty split for Programming PHP. I thought I'd spend days comparing lines and finding files. I wrote countless utilities and programs out of avoidance. When it finally came to do-or-die time, I did it in 15 minutes by looking at the book and going "oh, I wrote that. Oh, that chapter is all Rasmus." etc. I checked a few times against the files, but it wasn't rocket science or giving birth.
