Please Undo

We're a spoiled bunch of brats. Spoiled by computers with that conveniently located undo option. Spoiled by parents who let us do whatever we want. Spoiled by teachers who said it's Okay to err. News Flash: It's Not ! Try telling your boss that the last piece you sent to the client has errors in it and you'll know it for a fact.

You can't make errors. If you do then you should be prepared to face the consequences. As we grow up the margin becomes increasingly narrow. Still we're a generation who believes that we can get away with anything because we always did. Parents forgave. Teachers usually just gave warnings and it always worked out in the end.

In life, we're not really over the fact that our parents are no longer looking over our shoulders and if we mess up no one will even know until we're neck deep in shit.  The attitude that says i know this is going to get out of control but I'm still gonna go this way and see what happens or figure it out later can only take you so far.

What they forget about is that you get to take the decision once and only once alone. The chain reaction begins. It can't be undone and there really are no second chances in life. You'll have to live with it for the rest of your life. So thinking it through at times isn't such a bad idea after all even though it might not be as exciting.

  1. Of course, making mistakes is natural - learning from them and not repeating them is imperative!
