I don't like Mondays (tell me why)

There is no worse feeling than coming into your office bright and early on a Monday morning, hitting the power button on your computer, and... nothing. That's what happened to me this morning. 7 am - no computer, no help desk, and nothing I can do about it. So here I am on my smart phone with my Monday morning tip of the day. Don't be so dependent on technology. Otherwise, you'll be stuck at your desk wondering how to kill time until your 9 am deposition starts (with no access to your witness outline because it's on your computer. Technology drives nearly every aspect of our society, including our businesses and our workforces. Think about disaster planning for your business, and how your business would function if it had to do so without technology for even a day. Scary exercise, but maybe one that we should all do so we don't get caught with our servers down one day. As for me, I'm off to dig into my file cabinets and see what I can get done in the next two hours.
