This is definitely embarrassing to admit but I learned how to ride a bike pretty late in life. By late, I mean I learned on an adult bike when I was about 12 because someone pushed me down a hill. Hold your giggles, please.
I’ll never forget the exhilaration of realizing “hey! I’m riding a bike”… just seconds before I hit a literal bump in the road and went flying over the handlebars. I slid across the concrete like I was sliding into home base so you can only imagine what I looked like after the fact. Judging by my mother’s look of horror, I was a mess. But despite the scrapes and bruises, I kept riding my bike (uphill, even) and eventually, I wasn’t half bad.
Now, I bring up riding a bike because I think we’ve all heard that phrase “it’s as easy as riding a bike.” I say, bullshit. Learning to ride a bike isn’t so easy (and I have the scars to prove it). I will give bike riding a little credit though – it’s easier than building a content strategy that works for recruiting candidates. And even though you’re getting older and wiser, like I was at the far-too-old-to-be-learning-to-ride-a-bike age of 12, I bet you’re still a little shaky on figuring out the right balance of branding and education, content and creativity, right?
