Sometimes, some things takes time to master and craft, and hence the word practice makes perfect. Thought i agree experience is learnt through iteration and different experiences, we have to understand skills also takes time to hone.

Take it from Jiro himself, there's even a Japanese word for it - shokunin.

I feel that you speak as if there's some angst in you thinking that older people do not value your opinion based on your age, i think it works both ways. And both parties must always have a growth mindset to learn from each other. Setting your mind…
