exactly. many times during standups I can't help but raising my eyebrows in suspiciousness when I hear other devs say a specific task is super complicated and they need to come up with some weird customized implementation to achieve it.

at least 90% of the times with a more accurate google search, or just by digging deeper in the documentation of the library - framework we are using the solution is there.

Every task was once super complicated and specific.

The key words here are "was once"... IMHO, the most important part of the job is to break down super complicated and specific tasks to small, simple tasks.

that's another very important skill:
always keep in mind the global picture, but be able to split the problem into small simple tasks
