Craftsmanship in Software development

I found a wonderful In Progress book and read the following section that really struck a chord within me.

Craftsmen could be considered experts at learning, identifying an area of ignorance and working to reduce it. Like bare patches in a garden, ignorance can be reduced by cultivating your seeds of knowledge. Water your seeds through experimentation, practice, and reading. You can choose to hide these bare patches from the light, embarassed by their size, covering them with tarps to keep your pride intact. Or you can choose to expose them, being honest with yourself and the people who are depending on you, and asking for help.
