Finishing side projects - macwright.org
This is part of the Yerkes-Dodson Law – that being a little nervous helps, but true and complete anticipation decreases your performance.

Thinking back to the many projects I had written without an ounce of planning - geojson.io, simple-statistics, documentation - I certainly have regrets, so many regrets, about some of their implementations, but could I have sussed out a correct plan at the beginning and avoided rewrites and flaws? Not really. Some would have benefited from an ounce of planning, but with any more than that I might’ve scared myself off.
