You're project will most likely not work at first, but don't be disheartened. It literally happens to EVERYONE, they just don't like to talk about it.
My words of advice to you when something doesn't work (be it your project, homework, anything:
- Don't freak out
|But I'm not dividing by zero!|
- Take a deep breath and slow down
|Dude, check out the backwards diode...|
- Bite sized chunks
|Bite sized. Enough said.|
- Stuck? Take a break.
|Break me off a piece|
When you get stuck, you can try too hard and saturate your mind to keep from absorbing new ideas. Take a break. Go grab a candy bar from down stairs, ride the elevator up and down, talk to a random stranger, draw a face on the side of your hand and make it talk. Anything helps. Something I've found is that by leaving the room, you change your mindset, allowing you to think differently. Folks spot me riding my longboard randomly across campus trying to solve something.
- Rotate the mirror and don't reinvent the wheel
