    In an "ideal" world--one without fallen angles and distortion--there would be clear-cut levels of progressive mastery. Motivation would arise per a type of Montessori-like or Edenic interest and guidance by Mind, Love..

    In the present, "real" world, it is a case of not making things too difficult nor too easy: "hurdles" that are doable, that develop and strengthen, in areas of interest (being-cognition) or necessity (deficit-cognition).

    Life IS difficult.

    If physical conditions are not threatening us, our emotions step in and make us miserable.

    There are solutions to this, but that is another topic entirely.

    There is no measure. Although too much will crush some people, and not enough breeds malaise, and does not allow any learning and growth via overcoming obstacles in life.

    struggle just is. There is no right or wrong. When it brings you down rise up like the Phoenix and move forward.

    It depends on where we are in Maslowe's Hierarchy although it seems that it's always others who make things more difficult than they need to be.

    Just remember, there's no such thing as challenges, just problems! Until we master sustainability they'll just keep multiplying

    It's different for each person and in each situation. Some thrive in difficult situations and some don't, and we all have our strengths and weaknesses. so, ultimately, your question has no simple answer. All I can say is life should be hard enough to foster self-growth and easy enough to avert suicide.

    That's a good or a bad question*, I think that you may know that O.o.

    Going fishing as-we-may-say, one's philosophy ought not to be too difficult otherwise it would

    be too hard-to-learn.^

    So unlike the good guidance of others here we may say "that is too difficult, I am not going to try..".

    So try we must... hence we can "develop this as we go" meaning meeting new problems and their

    (existing or new) solutions.

    I & others have talked & written about one such problem - man's environmental problematic influence..

    And even tentative solutions have been put forward for sharing & discussion..

    * see Plogsties recent answer to the question, Why is it that Philosophers (often) in particular

    are blind-to-their-own mistakes ?

    ^ hard-to-learn for instance if we divide this-here-world of ours into 1) the present world

    or 2) an ideal, idealised world (just of mistakes, for example)

    Difficulty is universal. The level of difficulty of something is universal, it is the same level for everyone, but some people have skills or talents which reduce that difficulty. I.e. it's not hard to be good if you know what you're good at.

    Beyond that, as already said, it's a matter of what particular something you're aiming for.

    Depends upon whos ideal you use to measure with.

    Very subjective.
