I don't think it is easy at all. In fact, I believe, it is very hard.
But it is quite different from setting a truly impossible goal like, say, winning Wimbledon.
If you don't aim high and put a good effort, you will achieve little. The OP seems to be willing to put time and effort into this particular project, so why not!
