Reasons Progress is Slow

Top ten reasons progress is slow:

1. I think too much, and don't start coding
2. I think too little, and start coding
3. I kill-off more code than I write
4. If the code is not perfectly clear, it must be wrong
5. I re-invent every step taken in compiler design for the last 50 years
6. Bugs, and unexpected behaviors (ML/Boehm)
7. No tracking
8. Too many irrelevant Lambda discussions
9. Too much irrelevant science
10. I started blogging
