The old saying "Practice makes perfect" is wrong. If i.e. you practice throwing darts, and you throw 100 times, and you miss every time, then what have you practiced? You have actually practiced to miss the target. But when you try many more times, then you are actually getting worse in missing the target, and you start to hit the target more and more times. You are getting worse missing the target, and therefore better in what you actually want. So keep on trying, as everything in life, and you will make lesser mistakes than before. Not because you are getting better, but getting worse in doing bad. Making mistakes is good in development of everything.
