Wrote this last summer and apparently didn’t publish. Still amazes me.
Listening to the packet pushers podcast there was a listeners question on studying and learning. Coincedently, I had just had one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I had just watched my 6 year old son ride his bike alone for the first time.
We’ve been working on it all summer, and he was more scared than anything else. It was late September and he was discouraged and didn’t want to practice anymore, and I literally had to force him back on that bike. But I knew that this day was the day.
And it was.
The look of absolute wonder on his face at his new, seemingly superhuman, ability to ride his bike by himself was awe inspiring. And it got me thinking just how lucky we are in this industry.
We have the privilege every day to learn. what a great job we have.
