Dad has a saying (many, actually) that goes:
Some people claim that they have 30 years of experience, when in actuality they’ve just experienced the first year thirty times, one after another.
That thought scares me. I can’t imagine anything worse than the sticky mire of unending stagnation, and non-improvement. I suppose some people find comfort in routine and regularity; while I can appreciate those things too, I place a higher premium on my own continual development and improvement.
I’m sure that simple experience can be very instructive. As the saying goes, “Time is the best teacher. Unfortunately, it kills all its students”.
