21 Days to Being Better Organized: Day 1
So today you could classify as just “one of those days”. I once had a teacher that said “excuses are tools of the incompetent”. This is something that has always stuck with me and while I’d like to say it doesn’t apply to me, today it does. The funny thing is that my problem actually helps with my new series. 21 Days to Being Better Organized.
What’s my problem? What’s my excuse? Sit back and I’ll tell you.
For those that keep up on FB you may recall that I am forever having issues with these wonderful Android O/S phones. It has been less than 2 years and I’ve had 8, yes 8 replacements. Why? Several reasons actually and none of which were an error on my end other than owning them. That’s another story. The point is I had to get my 8th “new” phone last week. This time they replaced my DROID X2 with the Incredible 2. Not a big deal. Yet….
I have several and by several I mean a metric butt load of projects going on right now. Most of which envovle pictures. Pictures which were taken with my phone (DROID X2). No big deal, right? I save my pictures to my SD card and back them up on my Verizon account so and all should be fine and dandy right? WRONG Girlfriend!!!
I sit down this morning to finish up some projects (2 of which were due TODAY) and guess what? NO PICTURES!!! My card isn’t just missing one or two pictures it’s missing ALL of them. Oh my heart just dropped to my feet.
I had a million and 1/2 other things that needed to be done today that involved my camera (aka phone) and guess what? It wasn’t working! Off to Verizon I go and you’ll never guess what happened. The guy couldn’t find my pictures either. Yeah I’m pretty irriated and upset with myself that I was not better organized with my picture saving/uploading/organizing abilities this past week.
So boys and girls, the moral of this first Day of Being Better Organized is always have a back up. Upload immediately and file them away safely.
Tomorrow I promise to work on a house project…
