I was sitting at my computer typing status updates for my team when my wife walked into my office. So I looked at her, smiling, and kept typing to finish the sentence as she was reading what I was typing.
When I finished she looked at me and says: “you’re typing and not even looking.”
It was then I realised for the first time in a long time I have a rather useful skill: I can touch type.
In fact, I can touch type on both a conventional keyboard and, depending on the device/operating system, on a phone.
I may be wrong, but based on much observation of others, I believe that may now be a relatively rare and valuable skill.
But I can tell you one thing for sure: it’s a skill that’s taken many, many, many hours and years of practice to master.
