Gaining Experience

Quote from the book Thinking with Data by Max Shron.

There is no shortcut to gaining experience, but there is a fast way to learn from your mistake, and that is to try to make as many of them as you can. Especially if you are just getting started, creating things in quantity is more important than creating things of quality.

There is a saying in the world of Go (the east Asian board game): lose your first fifty games of Go as quickly as possible.
