What did you do over the weekend? I’m sure you are wondering why I ask now as it is Tuesday. We are almost as close to the next weekend as we are from this past one. Well, I spent this morning getting ready to part with my 2-in-1 from Hewlett-Packard. I give props to their chat support and whoever does their @HPSupport on Twitter. Both went above and beyond in getting me help but, alas, my computer needs to go on a trip without me. A FedEx box and packing materials are on their way to me as I type on a different computer.
In this light, let me recommend a few things for all of us in 2015. We all need to back up our computers’ data. I had not recently and did not have my back up system in place. This means/translates to I am bad at following my own advice. Consequently, on my list of things to do tomorrow is back up my computer if it will let me. As both a writer and a photographer, I do not want to lose all the data on my computer. Hopefully, I can make that happen.
A second recommendation is to look at your life with the help of a coach. I subscribe to the Family Life Sports The SuccessLetter. This electronic newsletter allowed me to get a 75 minute coaching session with Tara. I am trying to rearrange my budget as I type so I can partake in either her soon-to-start group coaching called From Stuck to Unstoppable or one on one coaching. In just 75 minutes, Tara opened my eyes to things I think I should have seen on my own and has pointed me in a great direction for 2015.
My third recommendation is to choose a word. In my call with Tara, I talked about being lighter. Lighter in so many ways. I not only want to be lighter in weight but I want to be lighter in “stuff” around my home. I want to be lighter in worries. I want to be lighter overall.
My final recommendation is to get out and see some great films that are out right now. I saw “Wild” last weekend. I am now enamored with getting back to hiking, which I did a lot of in my late teens and early 20s. I have a list of films I want to see and, unlike previous years, I’m going to try hard to see them this year.
Do you have a word for 2015? Have you ever used a coach for anything – life, running, anything? Do you back up your computer regularly?
