We've all heard this before but it always bears repeating. As children we learn but doing, over and over. But as adults we forget this, the learning process, and we want to do everything perfectly the first time.
For me this became very apparent after our move to Ecuador. Learning Spanish at an age well over 60, I tried to not get frustrated when things didn't "stick". I know it will come in time, not perfectly, but when presented with a smile, it works.
Don't give up!
