There's a lot to be learned from the way kids learn. Most important: Embrace your mistakes, and don't forget to have fun.

Youth is wasted on the young. But that doesn’t mean you can’t still play the part—in a way.

Watch kids ski, for a start. They are extremely instinctive and perceptive. They learn by doing, failing, trying something different, and eventually succeeding. That’s the way they like it. Give a kid the opportunity, tools, and basic instruction to succeed, and they usually do. The struggle of learning isn’t a big deal, because they’re playing in the process.
