Today is not going well. I’ve got the Andrea Bocelli ‘Time to say Goodbye’ pumped for full dramatic effect.
What’s happened? My main computer is dead. The laptop I have everything on – accounts, ideas, photos, past work, CV. Everything. Do I have a backup? Not for about a year (I know, I know!).
So where does this leave me? I have to get a Melbourne Knowledge Week project to print this week. I have half finished jobs lost. I have finished jobs I haven’t billed for yet – what do I need to invoice for? I don’t know. It’s all gone.
Why do these always happen at the worst possible moment?
So, what’s next, time to rally!
- Laptop at the repairers to see if there’s anything that can be saved. You never know, and he’s promised to get it back to me by Saturday.
- I still have a Mac. Worst case, I start Melbourne for Idealists again in a mad, panicked, but brilliant stroke of time management over the weekend.
- Hope the tax man never asks to see full records of my accounts (you see there was this day, close to deadline when I lost everything…opps..)
- Throw some stuff around to feel better ..or maybe not..but I am a hopelessly hilarious runner, any other suggestions to relieve the tension?
Ah geez, it could be worse and it can only get better. Melbourne for Idealists will somehow happen. Clients, I figure something out. I better get back to my crisis!
