You have learned from one mistake - that is good. One of my favourite quotes is from Bill Gates "Success teaches nothing."

One way to avoid mistakes is to learn from others. Scout out some instructors. I tell instructor-wannabes that they have to have made a lot mistakes before they can impart their experience to others.
