"Whatever sense of professional competence we feel in adult life is less the sum of accomplishment than the absence of impossibility: it's really our relief at no longer having to do things we were never any good at doing in the first place - relief at never having to dissect a frog or memorize the periodic table." - "Life Studies," Adam Gopnik, "Life Studies," New Yorker, June 27, 2011.

Great quote. Not sure I agree with it though, given the rapid changes in tech. What we think we know so well today is outdated in a year. But it's true that as we get older we dwell less and less outside our mental comfort zone and go for the easy wins.

I used to think it was because with experience finding solutions were getting easier, but it could well be because we cherry-pick easier problems.
