All Creative Ventures Are Difficult

In this time crunched world, there isn't much space to experiment with new ideas, new technology, new experiences. The old familiar ways of doing things are a lot more comfortable and most days it feels like I need my habits to survive. Is that living? Maybe some discomfort or struggle is proof I am alive.

Learning this new technology is extremely uncomfortable and irritating. I can't figure out what I am supposed to do, the programs don't load correctly, I close the wrong window and lose my information. Is it worth it? I would like to just say no, but a little voice encourages me to stay with it. Aren't all creative ventures difficult?
