Making music that doesn't sound fucking shit after initially sounding awesome.

I tend to pile on and not focus that much on the overall mix while composing but when I get to the detail mix part there is either too much going on or I’ve already lost interest in the song to mix it well.

^ That, I also have a bad tendency of starting from a blank slate every time I sit down to make music instead of trying to build on ideas I've already got going!

Also when trying the method of bringing all the faders down once a song is composed and then mixing by bringing them back up and tweaking track by track it usually ends up sounding worse than the half-ass mix I was doing while composing. :x

God yes. I will even open recent projects, like what I did before...then close them & start over. Oy.

Lately I've been struggling with sitting still long enough to take a track from a really good, but basic idea, into something slightly more ready for arranging. Getting ideas and finishing ideas I have no problems with, it's that middle step that I seem really bored with lately.
