Probably overanalysis. I've got an eye for detail thinking about edge cases, but that has a tendency to bog me down before I start writing code for the normal case that I could then iterate on, which I'm trying to work on

This is what I came to post. I can spend up to an hour checking if there's something in the code base that can be reused for the task I have at hand, and then thinking about how it can be reused, adapted, or modified for different cases. And sometimes it's just easier to write a simple function or method to deal with the problem.
