New or old, never out of style

November 16, 2009

Old-school or new-fangled, the Back Space key never goes out of style.

Back Space allows us to stop, step back and take another look.

After considering our actions, we might go forward just as we’d planned. OR we might erase or delete what we’ve done and start over. Take a different course.

One of the most impactful things we can do in life is acknowledge and apologize for past actions.

The simple words, “I’m sorry, I made a mistake” can be hugely impressive.

Especially when followed by making amends. Going in a new direction. Starting over.

Today when I look at the keyboard, I realize that Back Space has always been the most powerful key on the keyboard.

(It’s a close second today only to the Delete key, which didn’t exist on typewriters.)
