Why New Years Matter.. but Shouldn’t..

“Should auld acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind ?”  I absolute love the New Years Eve / Day holiday time.  It’s a great ending to my favorite part of the year.  Christmas, followed by my birthday, and then the culmination of a years of efforts – New Years Eve.

A new year brings brand new opportunities.  It’s a time to reflect on your past and prepare for your future.  As a business owner it is my favorite time because I get to wipe the slate, clean the books, and plan a whole new year of events, ideas, and celebrate methods of new growth.  I get an opportunity to reflect upon my past, and use the lessons taught in 2011 to take me into 2012.  It’s a great feeling to start new and fresh, and new year is just that.  It’s time to not only prepare, but create our futures.  We as people decide to change our lives this day every year, we all pick a goal that we hope to take with us in to the new year to better our own lives and our own persons.

It’s important for us as people to make sure we are on a constant path of self enrichment and betterment.  It is up to ourselves to change our lives, we can’t sit and wait for someone else to do it for us, and this goal setting that New Years brings with it is one of the most profound parts of our existence.  Reflecting and taking action and responsibility.


Why do we feel the need to wait?

You are in control of your destiny, you are the only one who is empowered to make changes to your life.  Why wait?

A couple of quotes come to mind, both from music because I live every minute of my life with music, it is a deep passion of mine.

“You’ve got no one to blame for your unhappiness” – Wilson Phillips

Ok so the song is cheesy, but this line really sticks out.  You control your life and how you live it, if you wish something on yourself, then do something to make it happen! You can’t wait for someone or something to come and do it for you.

“You don’t have to wait until tomorrow, to resolve for change today” – Nate York

This is of great significance for me and basically sums up what I am trying to convey here.  I really should have made a blog post with just that one line.

If there is something you want, something you want to change, something you have been wanting to do.

Do it.  don’t wait for New Years day to plan to better yourself, why wait? Make resolutions, work towards bettering your life on New Years Day, and every day that follows.

Back up your Data!!!

Backup your data!

Backup your data!

Everyone tells you to back up your data, and you listen and say.. yeah.. I should.. but then you don’t.. let me share a story with you about my personal experience on why this is absolutely necessary.

Early 2010 I had all my financial data saved on my primary workstation.  Well guess what, of course it crashed on me.  I was luckily however enough to get it to power back up and transfer all my data to my other workstation.  It was a blessing and I was so lucky because right after it finished transferring that computer had crashed again, this time for good, there was no recovering anything on it.  I learned my lesson at point how important it really is to have back ups of all your data.
