Why is it so hard to get in working on my php skills!?
it takes like 1 day for me to start putting down code :S
why is that :S?
i can like be infront of the computer and in notepad with a whitepage and do noting just thinking what and how i will do this
:P and then some times i just feel ohh this is to hard :P so i do something else Please help me get in better focus for code!!! :)
Are you a perfectionist? If so, that may happen to you usually.
What I do first is write code that works according to the requirements of client (I'm putting client here just for an example) then like all other big programmers out there, refine my code. Keep refining (minimizing) the code until I am happy.

ok thank you, i might say in some ways i am perfectionist,
but i have the big problem of thinking it will take for ever
and that makes me dont wanna do it :P
"lazy".. i really try not to be lazy, but i dont know i really do wanna improve my skills and so on..
the funny thing when i start i can be there and code for like 6 hours,
or more.. but it is the like first 20 min ~ :S
i think, there is only one way. And it's stop Waiting and just do it.
but if i dont get that thinking moment my code gets like from code to wtf? is this lol ;) ohh well i dont know :S
That's a demon we all face unfortunately :) When I'm staring at the screen with a blank look on my face I usually just take a wonder around the office. I think much better when I'm wondering about so by the time I've made it back to my desk my brain is in gear and I'm ready to start coding :)

Break your project up into chunks or milestones. Work towards each milestone and it will make the project seem not so big and overwhelming.
If you're problem is you spend too much time planning then you'll get faster at this as you do more coding. You'll encounter problems and solve them you'll be able to get through them a lot faster the next time you have the same problem.
You say your mind goes blank when it comes to actually writing code? Is this because you don't know the syntax, functions, etc or is it because you don't know how to do what you want to do? If it is the former, then do some more reading and learning about the language. If it is the later, try thinking about how to do it not in the language but in simple terms. Work through the steps to achieve what you want. Once you have that solved, turn it into code.
As you work more and more with the code you'll be able to start thinking in code. I do this all the time. I find it easier to thinking in code than in other terms. Don't have to convert it over to code. It's already there. Hehe. Thinking like this isn't always the best though.
Also it sounds like you have a lack of motivation. With this you'll need to find a project that interests you and you want to complete it. Motivation to work on a project is something you'll have to figure out yourself. Not much can help you in this area.
