I think you need to find a new job ;-).
I've actually never had a problem completing software. I have always 
enjoyed all the aspects of being a software developer. I am presented 
with a problem, and I create something to overcome that problem (yeah, 
yeah, I know: 'It's not a "problem", it's a "challenge"').

I guess I really enjoy it because alot of the stuff that I write has 
never been done before (in a functionality sense, not a coding sense). 
It allows me to do it fresh, and I really like all of the challenges of 
making it fast, concise, robust, AND user-friendly. When you can get a 
fellow programmer to say "wow, that's pretty cool", and get an end-user 
to say "wow, that's pretty cool", that can really make it all worth it.
