2327This statement happened around a campfire one evening, but I cant remember exactly who the person was that said it.
But it basically implies that if you havent done something before, if nobody has ever done anything like it before, you dont know how to do it wrong.
So if you dont do it poorly the first time, youre never going to do it. So I encourage my chemistry students to not be afraid of doing something, even poorly, because one never knows what success may be coming out of that.
