We all know the use of CTRL Z .It will undo your previous action, a way to go back and correct. While I was writing this article, I would have punched Ctrl Z in my keypad many times. It was so easy to correct mistakes, redo the sentences, bring back words I had deleted and made my working so much easier. Like always I wondered, just hypothetically, how would it be if we had this option in life??
Undo actions of Anger I would undo spoken words or my actions due to my anger that would have hurt my family, friends and anyone who might have been a victim of it. Getting angry can be natural and could also have justifications, but the end result has always been negative. I haven't been able to control my anger totally but I have surely learnt that the consequences can be difficult. In a fit of anger people speak rude words, do things they don't mean and then regret later . Even though there can be many reasons behind all this, if only we had ctrl Z option in life, there would be lesser broken hearts around you.
Accidents Accidents are a traumatic experience for everyone involved. Imagine having Ctrl Z option while you experience something unpleasant.A few seconds of misjudgement on roads can be disastrous.The ducking, the speeding, the 10 second blind driving while texting , all cause so much of irreversible damage and a CTRL Z could save so many lives. Also the amount of domestic accidents children face in daily life can be very stressful for parents. The pouring of the milk on a clean floor, the hand stamp in a friend's house wall, puking on a brand new carpet and so many more. Even work accidents for adults are painful for families involved.
Cooking disasters Cooking is an art .But for amateur cooks it can be a daunting task. While you get help in many ways, getting the consistency right, adding the correct amount of salt, cooking for a longer time can all be undone if only Mr.Ctrl Z was with us in the kitchen.
The above are just a few instances and probably many more would come to your mind while reading this.While hypothetically all this sounds good, in reality we cannot change when we make critical decisions or correct mistakes . We have to accept that mistakes cannot be undone and that CTRL Z is only a man made feature in the world of technology. Though prevention measures are prevalent in every field, accidents and mishaps still happen causing grief and stress for so many of us. The rules are there for a reason but it is being neglected causing all of the above issues.
If only we paid more attention to the warning signs and signals on roads , listen to our inner voice while making life changing decisions and got our priorities right, life can still be beautiful and stress free even without the CTRL Z option.
