Actually, it's not a year lost if you learned something from the experience :)

It's like I agree and disagree at the same time ;) Great experience from a big perspective. But still a lot of "wasted" time or at least time which could be spend in different way.

I agree with Richard. You did not loose a year. You gave it 101%.

I know It is very common to not understand the value of doing something until a long time after.

Let me ask you, Would you blame a person that tried to sail around the world alone? Would you blame that person if they gave it 101% then the mast broke? Probably not. In your own way, you did the equivalent of sailing around the world.

It is the journey not the destination.
