My Take:
1. One tends to avoid mistakes because they can be costly, a particularly severe one and you could be out of the game.
2. Advising to make more mistakes translates into advising to depend more on luck.
3. There has to be a better way to learning more :) Like making only 'pardonable' mistakes. Now go figure.
