There's this video that I like. It's interesting to listen to what this guy has to say. There are three or so cuss words in the presentation, but apart from that, it's an interesting presentation.
"After ten years in the industry, I'm surprised that things actually do work". = I could not agree more.

There's a thing called work-o-phobia. It is a dangerous, dangerous thing. It's not about being afraid to work. It's about the fear of not being able to sleep.
Did this ever happen to you?
You get home from work. At 5PM. You look at your mess of wires that is sitting on your anything but tidy desk and it's your project. People who look at it, think it's ugly, but to you it's poetry. You still havea lot to do, and you know exactly what you could do to move forward with your project. Normally you would just start working. Reading datasheets, thinking, soldering and other cool stuff. But not this time. This time it's different. This time, you're afraid to start because there's one thing that you don't know if it will work the way you planned and you know the time passes faster when you're hacking, so soon it will be 8PM, then 10PM and then you find yourself scratching your forehead, thinking why isn't it working, checking, duble checking all the connections and stare at your monitor whit your red infected looking eyes - reading some datasheet, at 3 AM.
You can't go to sleep. You're not able to sleep. This happens to you once, or twice, then you say "hmm, I'll take a day off the next week, that's when I'll have a whole day to figure it out".
Congratulations you are suffering from work-o-phobia.
