The better you are at something, the less effort it looks like it took you, I'm sure every programmer here knows this. Designers have it even worse, the better a job they do, the less work it looks like it took.

Yeah, I'm definitely not arguing that. The point is that, at least when people don't critically think about something (which happens depressingly often), people neglect training and skill in evaluating the difficulty of tasks that appear easy.
