When a kid makes a mistake in a sand box he can try again, but how many chances do we have ?
depends on the environment.
In business? a) until you get fired or b) until you get bankrupt. Business is the evil game, it can last quite long but it always comes back at you.
In social life? quite many, but if you dissatisfy your spouse for instance it will most likely have severe consequences, while depending on your relationship with family you can make quite a lot of mistakes and, if they are cool, you can still be included, though with reduced status. Friends are somewhat in-between and very depending on your luck. Some literally sticks with anything, some runs away at the sight of you in new clothes.
In education? even more, but with consequences if we don't follow up on time.
In health care? depending on severity, I would still say quite few chances. A doctor can't kill more people than he lets live, and a nurse can't be more rude than her employees will allow and mostly nurses are supposed to be quite friendly, at least by modern standards here in Norway.
Overall we have few chances where we are relied to be responsible, while more chances where we are less responsible and more ruled by permanent positions (like family or country of origin).
