Have you ever felt this?

Oh GOD! Have you ever felt this...
Your goal is right in front of you! 'I can get it, right now!', you tell yourself. Just the thought of it energises you and you start moving with all fervour you have! But the very instant you start, you see your goal moving away from you and in an instant you are enervated. You loose interest in your goal, life, and everything around. And, even in crowed clamouring cubicle, you feel lost! You keep pounding on your keyboard, generating tens and hundreds of lines of code (which actually works) but even that doesn't appease your troubled soul! You browse through your favourite site, thinking to regain composure, but nothing helps :-( :-( :-( Don't know what causes this this irritating ride on a seesaw! I'm sure lot of you out there must have gone through this... (if not, I wish you don't have to go through this mess)
What do you do to get out of such blues? What causes it???

P.S. No, this is *not* love, please, I can recognize when that happens. I'm dead serious here. And no, I haven't been working hard as hell right now. Oh! Is that the solution: Work hard as hell and burn away all the !@#$ing blues! Man, I don't know :-(

Well, I fear you are right to an extent. This is definitely one of the factors.

Hey! May be too much of Job pressure. It's ok. Think positive. Always try to remember what you have achieved yet …
Agar Shaadi ke bare main sooch raha hai to may GOD bless you! Agar Shadi kar raha to bhi “Think Positive”. Tumhare pass “blog” hai .. Jaha tum aapane marji ki baat kar sakate ho!!! :)

Hi,
I agree with you. I was in a such state formore than 5 months. Its exactly seems like, so tangible target is moving away. Sometimes TIME is the best solution. If you are comfortable with wait and watch attitude, you may not get FRUSTRATED due to such situations. Some people think that they can make things happen, but believe me, its not always true. Things are scheduled to happen when time comes. What you can do is just make sure that they will get scheduled. Still nobody can predict that they will get executed.
You have not mentioned anythings specific, such state of mind arises when you are not ready to accept that whatever is happened to you is you fault. Some 3rd person is responsible for the things gone wrong to you. You cannot do anything to stop such things from happen and irritates most. Patience is the key. Sometimes shifting your focus may help.
If things are going wrong in proffessional life, it matters most. Especially when its setback to you goals, ambitions. Think like, you failed to anticipate that things may take such a unwanted turn and be cautious for the next time. Taking it positively it will help you mature. You cant enjoy success to its fullest unless you know the dark side it had. Aint it?

No one knows. But one thing I know is that his code is working fine for now :).

Relax,
This is a usual thing. I think this happens when you are sure that your goal is in your reach, and then, you try to relax! Especially when the goal looks easy! Suddenly, some unexpected, rare and irritating hurdles comeup and you are gone, because you are not prepared for the hurdles. Try to change the assumption of the difficulty level. (If you are thinking the goal is eassy, then try to think that it is a bit difficult by imagining some hurdles. Sounds difficult, right? :) )
But, I know one thing for sure, you are going to reach your goal. All the best!
