Mistakes are often cheap education. No assumptions, no controlled environments. Real inputs, real outcomes. Real growth. Living, changing variables. Interacting, colliding. The temptation of setting up camp in their midst. The excitement of playing with and against them. The knowledge of experience. The knowledge of the whole.
If you are going to make mistakes, and you will be making some, make so many that you exhaust all possibility of making any more.
