Help Me Escape This!

Help Me Escape!

Yup, today is one of those days. I spent my last 10 minutes staring at my text editor, thinking that the syntax highlighting looked trippy. Then I got up to drink some water. When I came back I checked and double checked if my white-space and indenting was correct and consistent. Then I thought I'll get some chips from the kitchen. When I got back I started thinking how I can add more comments to the code to make it readable. Then I was deciding if asterisks work better than slashes as the thing you put before and after a line of comment in the code.

I guess it's fair to say that I am having an utterly unproductive day today. Do you have such unproductive days too? What do you find yourself doing on such days?

Mostly it has to do with something you should do but are subconsiously suppressing... or not?

I have found that my productivity is inversly related to the number feeds and emails I read and the number of songs I purchase in iTunes and directly proportional to how much I enjoy the project I am working on.
