In some contexts (likely not the one you mention, though), I might use "lessons". I would never use "learnings".

comment Is there a word which means whatever you want it to mean? Or has no meaning?
Do you mean "baz" instead of "faz"? I've never seen the latter. By the way, continuing the list: "qux", "quux", etc.

comment Which is correct, “sales price” or “sale price”?
Similarly, on sale vs. for sale. Some people use the former to mean the latter while others (including me) use it to mean discounted.

comment Are there English equivalents to a Japanese old saying, “Be the mouth of cock rather than remaining as the tail of ox”?
"Rooster" is the word you may be looking for. American English prefers it while British English prefers "cock" for male chicken.
