So it is the good strategy, because Haskell's slogan is "avoid success at

I don't think so. It's just that we have different kinds of people with
different skills. If you try to please the whole world, you please nobody.

As a beginner Haskeller, I just know I need more practice. folding is now
natural to me, but monad transformers and applicative stuff not yet, but
that's a matter of time. I just need to practice practice practice.
