The difficulty will melt away

Anybody who has experienced sub-zero winters realizes how formidable a foe ice can be.

At first, a block of ice seems hard and unrelenting. Yet, if you leave it on the kitchen counter for a couple of hours, it thaws into cold water bit by bit. Soon enough, it turns into a mush that can be endlessly manipulated, leaving you wondering as to how this substance was rock solid just a couple of hours back.

Learning a new skill can seem like melting a block of ice – hard, impenetrable and unrelenting at first. Yet, with patient effort, the edges start to melt. Gradually, the difficulty thaws and you are left wondering how it was that something so easy once felt hard and formidable.
