We start with easy material and as you keep reading the difficulty level picks up.
At the beginner level, don't worry if you get frustated. Everyone does with Vim. It's different. It's quirky. It's maddening. That's all normal, just keep going like the experts did. The modal system, while different, is exactly what makes it so fast.
At this level you've likely committed to using Vim professionally as your number 1 editor (when you have the choice). You're fast, but always have the desire to go faster. The mouse and arrow keys are likely disabled and you're less and less enamoured with GUI environments.
Here you achieved guru status. Finding a job is easy because you quickly edit many files at once using scripts and regular expressions. At the same time, there's always a new tip or trick someone has found that would help you improve. So you keep learning Vim.
