I like all your thoughts, but will focus on this one...

I have had program ADHD often....everything's good, then one lift sucks, so I'd scrap everything and get a totally new program, goal, etc...

So, if your bench and squat are progressing on 5/3/1 but the DL isn't, then only scrap the DL portion and keep the other parts that are working and doable. Just make sure your DL program is in balance with the other portions so it doesn't cause the bench/squat to suffer...

IMO, do the least work and make the fewest changes to keep your progress going.
