Let me try a thought here. I don’t know if it’s true, but let’s see. I’d like to believe that few of our daily activities are that difficult, there are a lot of things we can learn and master. Yet, the mistake we keep making is believing these things are easy.
This may sound like a play with words, but I believe there’s something here. When we believe things are easy – what do we do? We try to do it with our left hand, while doing something else with our right. Not really paying attention. And when the end-result isn’t satisfying we say that X is a very difficult activity.
There may be exceptions, prodigys – talents that just seem to “get it” from an early age, but I believe that more often than not, it’s the attention to detail and dedication to learning and improving that separates masters from the average.
Things seem difficult when you haven’t put in the work.
We’re winging it, more often than winning it.
