Experience is the best learning tool in my opinion. It has worked really well for me.  The thing I have recently learned (now that I’m almost 40) is experience can also make you very, very, wrong.  I was recently at a group meeting where someone was going on and on about what happened in the past.  I get it.  History repeats itself.  But, does it always?
