    Alas I think not. I know I have a lot of experience in my 49 years but I fear I am cappable of the same mistakes that I have made in the past.
    I feel there are two ways too learn, one by wisdom of others who if listerened to can teach a great deal the other is pain.
    I am sure like many others I mostly follow pain route.

    Experience is the best teacher SOMETIMES.  If our minds are not focused on learning while we're in the experience, the experience could be wasted.  On the other hand, there are somethings that we learn better from someone we trust and consider qualified to teach.
