Why, you ask? Because I finally came to my senses and took the time to back up all of my work files. It has been months -- months!! -- since I've backed up transcripts, billing spreadsheets, and the like. The need to do so has been niggling at my mind and interrupting my sleep for weeks, but I never "got around to it." I've been perched on the edge of my seat waiting for the catastrophic, Murphy's-Law crash of my three-year-old laptop that, thankfully, never came.
If it's important to you, folks, back it up.
Today's homework assignment is to back up your data and then write fifty times: "I will regularly back up my data."
I know that "regularly" is a relative term. If your career and/or finances revolve around your computer files, they should be backed up daily or every other day.
