Some things look deceptively easy while others tend to look extremely difficult.  It’s often easy to dismiss the difficult ones when you don’t know or understand the effort that went in to it. It’s generally a good idea to try new things and to operate somewhere near the upward edge of your existing skill level, except perhaps at those times when you are doing work for hire and other people are relying on you to produce a finished product within a given time and budget.
