Whenever I'm trying to get something done urgently suddenly something wrong happens. And then a chain of 'something wrong' starts. It doesn't matter how many different ways I try, there's always something wrong waiting for me on the way.
And when I try to fix 'something wrong', something else wrong happens.
I feel like this whole universe, each and every atom in this galaxy is trying to fuck me up.

    Probably because you're rushing, going into fight or flight mode, and trying to do stuff as quickly as possible.

    I can't talk - I'm the same. As soon as I'm trying to do something as fast as possible, I end up making silly mistakes everywhere, which cause other silly mistakes, then more, etc.

    I simply get around it by never having the mindset of "this needs doing urgently", but instead "this is what I solely need to work on now." I find I actually go *faster* if I'm focused, and not trying to be speedy gonzales.

    @AlmondSauce makes sense. Looks like I'm never gonna pass 'stress test' in interviews

    @retard I often suck at programming tasks in interviews too (I can do simple stuff, but if it's something more algorithmically challenging then I generally don't fare well.) It's not that hard to avoid though - some don't have them at all, and some have take home tasks instead.
