At least once a day, I hear a small business owner bemoan the fact that their main computer has crashed and they had no back up.
Is your computer a time bomb waiting to happen?
There are so many tools available to us, there really is no excuse. The problem is that backing up a computer is one of those important but not urgent tasks.
Think about how you would feel if you lost everything on your computer tomorrow? Would your stomach twist into knots? How much time would you waste becoming productive again?
Here’s an idea. Back up your computer at least once a month. Put it on your calendar. Make it a date, just like you would any business meeting.
If you currently have a back up process, tell me about it. I’d love to hear from you. And if you think backing up is a waste of time, tell me why. Just leave me a comment below.
