Gosh, this is so relatable.
I had this a couple of time (and still have for some projects). Usually I take a break from it: if I am not able to do it with passion then I should probably not make it (speaking for personal projects of course).
Eventually I come back to it after improving my skills on various subjects and I'm feeling way more confident and keen to finish it.
The best way I found, for me, to overcome the lizard brain is to work in team: no matter if I'm down or not, I'll never let my teammates down too and I'll urge myself to help them, whether should it be by coding or managing the project.
That’s a great tip Pierre! Accountability is definitely a great motivator to see something to completion.
Never heard this term before, but I no longer feel alone in this sensation!
Damn, this definitely made me aware of a few lizard brain thoughts in my life right now.
Thanks for the kick in the pants.
