Sanity Found posted this anecdote which was amusing and wise:

  • Right decisions come from experience
  • Experience comes from wrong decisions

I try to learn from the mistakes of others, but the lessons become much more accessible and real when I have felt the sharp and bitter pain of being wrong.
