Sorry, did I offend your favorite sportsball game? Getting the ball in the net is easy with practice. Obviously there's a little bit more to it and the game has
nuances but it's basically get the ball in the net more than the other guys. Pass it around a bit move close then have a go?
Programming is basically moving a few bits around between registers and devices.
Filmmaking is basically pointing a camera at stuff happening.
Editing is basically putting some clips together and trimming off the ends.
Electrician is basically plugging in wires.
Being a successful politician is basically doing what constituents and/or lobbyists tell you to do.
Plot for Citizen Kane: Newspaper owner comes to power, but dies yearning for childhood memories.
Plot for Donnie Darko: Boy is warned by his future self to avoid accident, but has to die anyway to avoid time loop.
When you remove detail, pretty much everything can be boiled down to a summary that is incredibly simple and often wrong in its simplicity.
Why aren't I making millions in the nba? Same reasons you aren't probably, chief of all is not enough practice
Because you're not good enough. You could practice for a hundred years and not be good enough to be an NBA player. Sports is the segment of society that most clearly requires certain sets of skills that few people are able to require. Sports team owners tend to be good businessmen (otherwise they wouldn't be able to extort those stadium deals). It would be in their best interests to be able to pay athletes 1/10th of what they currently do. If others came along who could do it as well, the expanded pool would lower salaries, since availability of talent and demand for positions is what drives salaries up and down. Yet an average person just can't do what Kobe Bryant or Bryce Harper or Michael Jordan or Jerry Rice could do. They can't.
