what I learned when I fell off my bike

March 7, 2024 (2mo ago)


Six years ago, I wrote a Medium post titled "What I Learned When I Fell Off My Bike." However, I didn't actually write about any lessons learned. I just wanted to use a catchy title to express my thoughts on a quote by Albert Einstein:

"Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving."

I still believe that this idea holds true, but it's easier said than done. It can be challenging to keep moving forward, especially when facing new obstacles on a daily basis. Whether you're an entrepreneur dealing with business challenges, a parent raising a child, a student learning new things, or a programmer writing code and solving problems, it's hard to keep going.

Sometimes, it's okay to fail and not meet your goals. It could be something as simple as missing a day of exercise or not finishing a book in a week. Life can feel like riding a bike in the middle of a hurricane, and it's okay to feel overwhelmed and exhausted.

The most important thing is to get back up every time you fall and keep riding your bike. Thanks to my 23-year-old self for the reminder. I will keep moving forward.
