For most of us, learning something new probably means making some mistakes along the way. We learn from experience – and the more we try, the better we get. For this reason, many people agree that it is best to work hard and obtain our valuable learning experiences as early as possible. Then, with the simple mistakes under our belts, we can move forward and make more calculated decisions in the future.
In this sense, investing is just like anything else – it’s very likely that you’ll make mistakes when you first start out. But, don’t let that thought scare you, because it’s also probable that you will get better at making investing decisions as you obtain more experience.
