There are things that help of course, and one of them is having lots of tests that cover everything you have written so far. Then if you go down the wrong path and find yourself lost of the forest, the tests are always there to guide you back. Also, of course, making sure your code is well organized to begin with.
But no matter what, I still get confused sometimes. It can feel like there will never be a way out of the maze, but of course you always find it.
Sometimes I wonder if this confusion just means I'm a lousy programmer, and maybe good programmers don't experience it.
So that's why I'm asking this -- do you ever get confused while coding or does it always go smoothly and come easily?
