You seem to get the idea though that not everything you try will work out in a game. It is important to realize that for sure or else a beginner would want to quit because it is too hard to be perfect.
It doesn't help that I'm in my forties, but it did seem that other sports were easier and faster to get better at. Having to get on the ice/not having a lot of spare time like in my teens/early 20s is a huge obstacle to getting better as well.
I love to play, but other total beginners need to understand you will utterly suck at the beginning, and unless you are on the ice with good coaching several times per week, you will get better only very slowly.
