That piece of advice may be a little more specific to me. When I started out playing I was a fan of Paul Morphy. So I played a whole bunch of gambits, tried some risky sacs, and so forth.
I would have a lot less loses on my record if I would've just started out playing fundamental chess first.
it occured to me recently how much of chess is like Monopoly. The player who wins, is the one who makes the best trades. Just like chess.
To win at chess, you just need to make sure that with every trade, your opponent gives up just a little bit more than he gets in return.
(But not too much, the offer still needs to be tempting.)
