I am a designer / improver type personality. I think in the past 5 years my ability to resolve things is significantly diminished, and I don't think its my age (47).
I used to have a problem designing something, then after a while, find a fix, then that fix would fix something else as well etc.
Now. I find that I'm continuously going from one trial solution to another without resolving anything as neither of the solutions actually fix the problem.
If feels like I'm abandoned. ie that whatever you want to call
'inspiration' (aah! what if you do this in green instead of blue?) has been replaced by the design equivalent of writers block (blank, or a lot of lines on a bit of paper; next day is a lot of lines on another bit of paper and nothing makes sense)
Positiveness (a fix will be there) has been replaced by negativity (this will never be fixed)
and encouragement (good onyer for trying) from others to discouragement (why are you wasting time on this?).
