Starting a new sport or hobby can be a daunting task at first. There’s so much information out there, that it can sometimes seem a bit overwhelming. The next time you’re starting something new, make sure the first thing you do is a Google search for “Things I wish I knew when I started” and put your sport or hobby in at the end. For example, if you just started surfing, do a Google search for “Things I wish I knew when I started surfing”. If you just started knitting, do a Google search for “Things I wish I knew when I started knitting”. There will be a TON of information from people that have learned valuable lessons the hard way. And always remember, learning from your mistakes is good, but learning from others mistakes is better.
