  1. Have you ever had one of those moments where you're working or doing something and you need to do something incredibly simple but you can't actually remember how to do it properly and you have to do it several times before you get it right?

    I've had one of those days today; it's been a right pain to do something which should, in theory, have been incredibly easy to implement. And I didn't want to lean in and ask someone because they'd look at me like I'd lost my marbles. I guess it's because I do more complicated stuff and the little jobs are just out of practice....

    ..that or I'm getting some kind of degenerative brain disease.
  2. Happens to me too. Usually when I'm nervous or have a lot on my mind.
  3. I actually do have a lot on my mind at the minute, both work related and personal shit, and it's really having an effect. The weird thing is though that I did something quite complex this morning and it didn't phase me; it actually ran properly on its first attempt. Yet I couldn't for the life of me implement a simple timer..
  4. I find the best thing for this is to just stop what you're doing (if possible) and come back to it later when you have a clearer head, otherwise you'll just keep fucking it up.
