It is easy only to the extent that anyone could use their spontaneous
notions of what is required.  If they are persistent and thorough they will
end up with some conceptions regarding how certain mistakes might be
avoided.  If they reflected on that process with equal thoroughness, then
they might end up with some concepts with which to start the work all over
again.

So, no, it isn't easy.  And it isn't actually cheap either.
