"The way to solve the perfect problem is to make it imperfect.
Don't just bend one of the constraints, eliminate it.
Shut down the factory.
Walk away from the job.
Change your product completely.
Ignore the board.
If the only alternative is slow and painful failure, the way to get unstuck is to blow up a constraint, deal with the pain and then run forward. Fast."
Getting over the hump is difficult. The speed bump grows to an impregnable mountain as our fears feed the beast.
Sometimes it's writers block, sometimes it's technical limitations, sometimes it's plain fear of completion.
My biggest fear is not of the inability to complete something, but rather, completing something and hating it, or worse, feeling nothing at all (meaninglessness).
