In this post we will be talking about 3 serious tasks that you have to complete right now. These tasks aren’t specifically targeted at a certain job, but at everyone as a matter of fact. These 3 things are very important to business people and freelancers. Keeping yourself on top of your game is the only way to success.
Backup Your Important Files
I bet most of you knew what the first task would be and yes, you are right. Backing up important files is definitely one of the most important things to do on a regular basis. This alone will not only just save you time, but heartache in the future as well. Don’t just push this to the side and say you will do it next week, I made that mistake in the beginning of 2009 and my hard drives said Good Bye to me 2 days before a huge client project was due. I don’t have to go any further into that to tell you, you have to backup your files now.
Make sure you are Covered
Is your medical and dental plans in order? Does it cover your family for extensive injuries and hospital bills? If you aren’t sure, I recommend you finding out now. One of the most stupid, avoidable mistakes that you can make is play with a persons health. You could be in a accident on your way home from work and then what? Are you able to pay thousands of dollars for your medical care? That’s when you think back to today and where you say to yourself why didn’t I just check if everything was in order. Get it done before it’s to late.
Make sure your Finances are in Order
You have to check that all your financial information is in order. Not only does it save you a lot time, it could save you hours of frustration and money. Be sure that your books are up to date, or if you have a accountant doing your books make sure he/she is up to date. There is nothing more frustrating than having to catch up with your financial statements and recalculating everything from the start.
Hopefully you will get these done as soon as possible.
Do you have any other recommendations for everyone?
