Aim to Lose

Early losses teach you so much more than anything else you could do to try to avoid them.

When you take a couple of hits early on, you do more than just gather information. You start to get an intuitive sense of what kind of game you’re really playing. You figure out where the potholes actually are, not just where they could be in theory. You set yourself up for bigger wins.

Aiming for early, low-risk losses as a teaching tool is better than trying to study every possible way you could lose as a method to find a winning path. Just lose a little, build up your risk tolerance, and get better. Jump in.
