Many say that it is always the best thing for us to learn.To get indulged into it so as to know what and how it feels .
Many times we say learn from mistakes. It means it is through experience only we are learning. So i agree with the statement - "Experience is the best teacher"
experience is the Best way to remember a mistake. You remember your losses, not your wins. But....
a loss can also be to devistating to overcome, and sometimes not an experience that you need in your life,
Life is a mix, the Idea is to be smarter, not go from mistake to mistake, and claim well I am learning. Sometimes you need to ask and hold with caution also.
life is a slow learning climb for the better, not a 50 yard dash. Learn to be still, listen.... watch the signs and feelings as well as the results of attempts. Others mistakes can teach also.
I reckon, its an Open Mind ...
The Open, and not a closed Mind, is the Proper Orientation, in Learning ... It is Critical to our Understanding of The Truth, and the Existential's Reality.
A "closed" Mind is one ... where a Certain Prejudice, or Predilection, Governs, the Individuals Judgment ... Thus, leading, such an Individual into Believing ... "What I know, is All, there is to Knowledge ... and, What I Believe in, is the only Truth of Existential Reality " ... !
i do agree, we learn from our mistakes and we doesn't want to repeat our mistakes.
I'd agree. I grew up as a very cynical person because of my childhood experiences. And my experience based knowledge has saved me more than once from getting in trouble.
I'm just hoping my kids can learn the same lessons without having to do it as hard as I did.
Wry, what you allow in kids, you teach!
Teach what happens before they do something that you already have and know is no good....that way they understand the result of their actions before they proceed. They may well anyway, but you can be there to say look....you already knew from what I said this would not work.
Kids are smart, if you give them the chance to be
Experience is a great teacher providing we learn from it rather than simply repeating it ad nauseum.
Trouble is, it seems that you can't pass on that knowledge to kids. They just have to make the same mistakes, but I guess that's part of the learning process.
I don't believe so, you can pass on that knowledge to kids, they are watching us all the time learning and adapting themselves to the environment around. I do agree that a lesson learned through experience stay stuck with you forever. My son always tries different ways of handling issues and comes back to me sometimes for suggestions, sometimes with trophies of his conquest.
Learning can happen both ways direct and indirect experience.
I do not agree - Experience with understanding is the great teacher. To be educated in a subject that also contains your own experience is the best way to go. Experience without education is much lower 'level'.
I think it depends on the individual person. For me, experience doesn't teach me much except another way to cry, feel pain, or how to hold on to negative feelings. Who needs it??
What does work best, for me, is when someone can tell me what to expect or what is expected of me, (I'm talking generally speaking, not minute details) and then let me at it without any interference or changing the rules along the way. (not natural rules/consequences, I mean whether RED means stop or go)
I think experience can be both good and bad. Don't think it's the best teacher, but a good teacher yes. There are many new things coming out, which in the past who has the experience of the Internet being able to do so many things, so where does experience teach us in this?
Due to the number of health problems caused by alcoholism and cigarettes and proven as such in many (or all) of the cases, younger people still take them. So, experience tells us to avoid such things, but the young still take them, as an experience? In such a case, can experience be the best teacher? Leave it to your imagination.
Failure of something turns into a learning experience. Yes experience in anything is the true way of learning. Many say hands on...is the best teacher. Learning from reading and schooling are indeed ways to learn, but doing what you learned is the key to success.
Experience is the best teacher....agree?
Yes, experience gained through trial and error effort is the best teacher, because it develops reusable skill sets and wisdom.
Personal experience is good. Learning from the experiences of others-- even from reading books-- is good, too. Life is too short to learn everything from personal experience.
Not always, some things we never need to experience and some things can be learnt by observation, instinct and a good sense of what works for you. Experience is not always needed.
Agree. We'll never forget the lesson we learned from our mistakes.
I think we need to learn from our mistakes and also from our past - and learn to not let it RUN our lives. I think we all have good moments and we all have bad moments on which to focus in our lives. Experience has taught me that you CAN become anything and anyone you want to be if you only believe that. But it comes with a caveat - you actually have to do the work and learn from the experiences. Not always as easy as it sounds and sometimes it is painfully apparent that you have not learned as well as you thought you had. Then you just have to try again and try harder but experience is a wonderful teacher - and a cross to bear all at the same time!
The problem is that most people do NOT learn from their experiences !! we must be able LEARN from the experience first, and education is as much about how to learn as about what we learn, we need both the ability to learn and the experience; each on its own is like putting the coffee and the water side by side without mixing them.
My father in law, bless him, had huge experience in certain fields but never got on in life because he never learnt what it meant in the bigger picture.
experience can be a great teacher, but so can any source if we actually learn from it... nature, children, a stranger, a book, a movie, our pets..
people obviously don't always learn from experience, look around at our crazy world.
esxperience is not the best teacher
it is the only
it't up to us to choose to learn from it
In my opinion, I believe that experience is the best teacher.
Life is a series of experiences (or lessons) and if we fail to learn something from each of our experiences then we have to repeat that life lesson until we've learnt what life wants us to learn.
We all make mistakes and we all have the chance to learn from them. If we learn from our mistakes then most probably, we won't repeat the same mistake, or have to suffer the same lesson until we do learn.
Life is a patient and understanding teacher; we can learn the easy way or the hard way, it's up to us to choose.
The learning is incomplete until you as an active observer of life becomes involved and stumble on the way to reach your goal.
The life is full of challenges when you doubt yourself, your actions and others and you look for certainty...every experience is another question you are able to answer which may bring another question to answer...another challenge to deal with...another experience to succumb to ...our neverending quest for certainty...
Sure it is. Every time you are hit hard by situations you learn to deal with them and next time it wont be as hard to handle them as it was for the first time.
If we have to rely on our own individual experience to learn things, we'll never go very fat. We have to learn from the experience of others, from history and from books, especially novels which are really good teachers.
