How many follow this rule?

The Kenny Rogers Rule
How many times have you worked yourself up into a lather over some seemingly straightforward part of a build that you just can’t seem to get right? No matter how many times you do and re-do the steps, it all just seems to be an exercise in frustration. But then, in disgust, and before you start breaking stuff, you take a break, you sleep on it. When you come back, magically, the task comes together and you find yourself wondering what your problem was in the first place. I call this the “Kenny Rogers Rule” (from the lyrics to “The Gambler,” made popular by Rogers: “You’ve got to know when to hold ’em. Know when to fold ’em. Know when to walk away. And know when to run.”). Trust me, applying this rule will end up saving the day nearly every single time.

I have more than once . What gets me is say like a clutch plate is hanging and someone walks over and it falls together as soon as they touch it .

Little late on the reply, but I would have that problem and would drop all and walk away and have a smoke and come back and all would come together. If you keep at it, it will sure "F" Up!! I said this in too my two sons, so they would not get frustrated on problems. It is working! Walk away and comeback, it works. Its better then a comeback!!
