Expertise

Thursday June 16 & 21, 2016 #809C (June 21 corrected the June 16th post which had #808 verbiage)

“An expert is a person who has made all the mistakes that can be made in a very narrow field.” 

 ~Niels Bohr

If you have a passion for a particular activity or profession, you must be willing to make many, many mistakes in order to reach a level of expertise.  You don’t get there by reading or taking classes.  You get there by experience and lots of failures and errors.  It is only through learning from our mistakes that we become, over time, an expert in our chosen craft.
