It shouldn’t be like pulling teeth to do a backup. Nobody wants to get their teeth pulled out, it hurts! So why is making a daily backup like pulling teeth in most offices? As kids my mom tried to help us remember to do daily things like brushing and flossing by having us mark a calendar with cute stickers we could earn when we had done it. We could have stickers for every day, MTWTFSS. It just took some follow-up and a bit of time to make it a habit. Well, now that you are all grown up I want you to consider MTWTFSS backups. I know, you are probably wondering why anyone would compare brushing and flossing to backups, but I’m going to tell you why… both should be done daily or the long term consequences are costly, bad, and you could lose it all. Do you know what day it is? Do you know where your back up is?
