    Remember Occam’s Razor, as well as the KISS Principle.

    It’s simplistic. The learning has to be useful. It’s easy to learn “Don’t stick your finger in the table saw” but it doesn’t do you much good AFTER YOU DID IT !

    You can both regret a mistake and learn from it.

    In my experience, the Venn diagram of the two has a really big overlap.

    One you regret and would never repeat, but for which you can never make atonement. Those are the hardest memories of all.

    You can learn from a mistake yet still find it hard to practice what you’ve learned.

    I heard this great definition of “regret” on a Dr Who fan podcast (the Oodcast) several years ago: “Like wisdom, but too late.”

    “By three methods we may gain wisdom: first, by reflection, which is noblest; second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.” – Confucius

    Hey, I know I come here looking for things to dislike about “Frazz.” And maybe I’m just making an assumption today, but Caulfield’s body language in that second panel is pretty gross. There he is, saying something stupid but selling it with a QED bow. As if it were some brilliant bit of enlightenment.

    It ain’t.

    So bad.

    “Experience keeps a dear school, but fools will learn in no other, and scarce in that; for it is true we may give advice, but we cannot give conduct.”

    You can learn from mistakes you regret.

    I really like to look at them as learning experiences. I can either learn from them or do it again!
