What happens when you have the knowledge but you don’t have the understanding? Can you unlearn things? Can you relearn? Be careful how you look at the world because you see it with a bias, whether you think so or not.

Lessons From a Backwards Bike

You’ve heard people say, “It’s just like riding a bike,” meaning its really easy and you can’t forget it. Destin Sandlin shows that’s not necessarily the case. Destin’s YouTube channel has nearly one BILLION views. He was one of three pe0ple chosen to have a one-on-one with President Barack Obama in January 2016.

Destin learned two things from trying to ride a reverse engineered bike:

1. Knowledge does not equal understanding.

2. Truth is truth, no matter what I think about it.

So be very careful how you interpret things because you’re looking at the world with a bias whether you think you are or not.
