Hey John, thanks for the comment!

Seeing the professionals make something difficult look easy can definitley be discouraging, but I think if we remember that it took them lots of hard work to get where they are — if we realize that all the hard work and frustration is just part of the process — then we can find our way to a higher level of skill or produce something we’re proud of.

I think the biggest risk when starting anything new is the risk that we’ll give up before making any real progress. If we commit, give ourselves time, and stick it out, the chances that our effort will bear fruit goes up exponentially.
