It's easy, but it's not helpful.
As educators, we need to be reminded constantly of how it feels to be in our students' place: learning new things that are often unexpected. We need to push ourselves to grow, because that's what we ask of our kids.
I'm not a gamer. I'm not a social butterfly. I write code for fun, and I find writing code to be one of the most challenging yet rewarding things I've ever put my hand to. I love creating things. Things that do other things are even more fun.
But they're not easy. If they were, I doubt they'd be as interesting. It's similar to how a game works: there's a challenge, and you've simply got to keep trying until you get there.
I fail all the time.
But when a challenging project finally works, it grows beyond what I envision. I don't let failure stop me from creating.
