Well, after the hassles with the computer and getting behind on the daily targets, I got sick. So sick that I couldn’t concentrate, and therefore could do no useful work on the project. I tried, believe me, I tried, but it didn’t work very well.

So I went to bed.

For two days.

Now I’m back again, and managed more than the quota for today. Tomorrow I should be able to finish the first pass of the job.

Strategy used: if something happens that stops or impedes progress, don’t beat yourself up about it. Deal with the situation as necessary, and then bounce back when you can. Feeling guilty that you’re behind won’t help.
