People talk about bike riding when they want to remind us that some things, once learned, are not forgotten.

What they don't mention is how we learned. No one learns to ride a bike from a book, or even a video.

You learn by doing it.

Actually, by not doing it. You learn by doing it wrong, by falling off, by getting back on, by doing it again.

PS this approach works for lots of things, not just bikes. Most things, in fact.

Yes, but first of all you need the tool (the bike).

Thanks for sharing!


What do you mean with that?
I think he meant that you first need the idea of a potential business (the bike/tool).

I mean sure, you could ride this old broken bike -- but you're bound to fall off and scrape a knee or two in the process.

But if you do a bit of research -- you could find a bike that'll last you a lifetime, the bruises might happen -- but they'll be from your inexperience in riding the bike -- not the bike itself.
