Hello.

I have this question: if I must describe myself as "not actually a math guy", do I ever have a chance to become a great coder?

My strong side have always been arts and literature. And although computer programming could be considered to be some sort of engineering discipline, I actually see it as a certain type of creative art.

But still, as not being an excellent "math genius", I'm not really sure if I can remain long enough in software industry as a developer.

I admit, I do have serious respect towards mathematics, and I'm trying to improve my math skills. But since I don't have this so-called "natural talent", the progress has been extremely slow. It still takes awfully long time for me to solve any problem that requires not-so-trivial calculation. And complex mathematical formulas look like some unreadable hieroglyphics.

Therefore, as an "incurable artistic person", should I continue writing code, or would it be wise to consider a career switch?
