When the new iPad came out, called the iPad Air, it had a faster chip, was lighter, thinner, and narrower.
On the outside the wider bezels were narrowed because of advances in technology. The reason for the wider bezels was simply that it was too easy to unintentionally touch the edge of the screen and disrupt your work.
Apple was able to narrow the bezels because they were able to engineer the software to distinguish between intentional and unintentional touches.
Wow! What if we could reengineer all relationships with that type of software.
What if we could eliminate all misunderstandings from a relationship?
What if no feelings were hurt by unintentional acts?
What if there were no more silent treatments?
What if arguments which started due to a misunderstanding became a thing of the past?
What if we could eliminate phrases like:
“That’s not what I said.”
“I didn’t mean to hurt you.”
“I had no idea how I was coming across.”
Perhaps we could narrow the bezels in our own relationships if we reengineered out thinking, our habits, our tone of voice, our sensitivity, and our focus on ourselves.
Like the iPad Air, a life with less misunderstandings will lead to happier and more fulfilling relationships.
