Over a bump

When we’re biking over a bump on the road, it is best to loosen our grip on the bike.

The tighter our grip, the more we absorb the shock from the bump.

It works the same way when we drive and find our car skidding. There’s no point attempting to turn or brake at that moment. We have to loosen our grip, wait till we feel the contact of the wheels on the road, and take control.

It is counter intuitive to loosen our grip at a moment when we risk losing control. But, doing so helps us acknowledge that external factor and then gain control after.

So it goes in life.
