When Abraham Lincoln was upset with someone, he would write a “hot letter” and put it aside, unsigned. He would pour out his anger into the letter – but not send it. By acknowledging his anger on paper, he was able to then step back and process the situation. It also helped that the tools to write a letter were not always at his finger tips (a pen, ink and paper or a secretary). Today, with social media always at our finger tips, we are far to quick to practice the same exercise via the keyboard, but are far too hasty in posting our thoughts. I think the world would be a better place if we all just took a pause before clicking send. Happy Birthday Mr. Lincoln!
