Why should I have a "motivation to learn" so much about using git?
I am not learning it our of curiosity!

You make an analogy of fishing.  Suppose you are a teacher, and
a government imposes the rule that every teacher must catch a fish
each day in order to be allowed to teach that day.  Do you want
to learn to fish, or do you want the rule cancelled?

Development tools are supposed to make our work easier -- not harder.
For me, Git means many hurdles to jump in order to do the things that
were easy before.

Also, I do this infrequently enough that I will have time to forget
whatever I learn now.
