This amuzing and interesting blog talks about what he calls Programmers Block. It is exactly the same as writers block.

He also touches a solution to the problem.

"I think my biggest problem is that I have big ideas. I constantly get these grand visions for some great new technology or piece of software or service or what ever and my adrenaline really gets pumping. I sit down, sketch it out and then start thinking about how great it's going to be when it's done. Boom, crash, there's the mistake."
