Seems we're in a similar situation. I've just stopped worrying about it. That sounds like I'll never get anything done but the way I see it, my job already imposes deadlines and stress on me. Why would I keep doing that to myself. My projects are for learning and fun, so I guess that influences this attitude I'm telling you about.

I may not do stuff for days, have weeks where I do something little at a time every night, or there are fridays when I've got nothing else to do and if I find myself at 1 am in the zone, I keep going. I've done less healthy things at those times.
