I have a theory that the day you stop wanting to learn stuff about your craft is the day that you should accept the fact that you're not a good programmer, merely an accomplished dilettante.

Actually, the theory extends to 'The day you stop wanting to learn stuff is the day you should accept that you have failed as a human being'.

It doesn't hurt to think you're good. What hurts is thinking you don't have to try to be better.
