Hey Kid: System Failure

As great as technology is... sometimes it sucks. One little glitch in the system and an entire project can be screwed up beyond all recognition. Take this blog for example. The main server is down, so I can't log in to post. Fortunately, there are alternative means. Since I can't log in to post, I can post via email. (A simple work around.) There usually is a back up plan. One of the first things you'll learn about troubleshooting is to do a system reset. Reboot everything, clear out the clutter and get a fresh start. It's simple, easy and (usually) does the trick.

The same is true for our every day lives as well. Every once in a while, when things are not going as smoothly as they should, we need to recognize it and reset whatever it is that's not working well. Sometimes the best reboot for us is a good night's sleep. Learn to step away and start fresh.

You'll gain a new perspective.
