There are certain things in life that might seem petty for some but means the world to the others. It can be a certain hobby, a course one studies in college, a career that one pursues despite the degrading salary, or other endeavours that sounds fruitless for some.
The hell with them!
This particular task might be so trivial or too simple but, I guess, even the most intelligent person in this world will surely fail in doing this trivial task if he doesn’t possess humility and simplicity. That would be a big slap to one’s swollen ego.
