Let someone else pay the "stupid tax"

A certain project has allowed me to meet often with three very wise men over the last couple months. I wish I had been writing down many of their words of wisdom. Recently one of them said, "Let someone else pay the stupid tax." It was his way of saying, "Learn from the experience of others." Read books, ask advice, observe the successes and failures of others. Why should we always learn the hard way?

How about you, heard any good advice lately?

I learn from a lot of the biz guys i'm surrounded by. many have been upside down at one point or another, and i've learned from them all.

I like thinking of it like someone else paying the tax.
