Dream Partner Blog

Important vs. Urgent

It has been a rough two weeks for me.  The webhoster that I have had for the last 3 years for my Patty Sadallah site and my Dream Partner Blog had a fire and for many days, my site and my blog were down completely.  When it did come back, it had reset itself to April 28, 2011.   
Everything that had been changed, or people who had been added to my mailing list since then, were lost.
I knew that I needed to transfer the site and when I made the transfer request; I was told that it would take 5-7 business days for the transfer to be complete.    Plenty of time, I thought, to get the copy of my site, upload my contacts, move the blog address and copy my newsletter messages. 
I had some of this accomplished in the two days since making the switch request, but unexpectedly, this transfer happened 3-5 days earlier than anticipated.
I was able to move the website and some of my newsletter messages,but lost the rest; contact list, newsletter messages and my blog.  So, about 50 blog articles and 21 video blogarticles and 3,000 contacts are lost in cyberspace forever.
So, this is the beginning of the new Dream Partner Blog and it challenges me with the concept of important vs. urgent.  You see, I had plenty of opportunities to switch this site.  I had already found a webhoster that I was happy with for my Northeast Ohio Christian Roundtable site and that site was much less expensive.    
Each month that I got the other webhosting bill I would say, “You really should move your website and save half the monthly cost.”  But, then I would get busy and forget about it until the next month’s bill.  OY. 
Does this every happen to you?  Do you put off something that is important because you are running around putting out urgent fires?  In the long run, important things take more time and energy up front, but then they always save you money and headache in the long run. 
This week I was reminded of the expression.”Eat the Frog” If you have to eat a frog anyway, just get it over with first thing.  It will give you satisfaction and help you get on with your day.  So, what are you putting off?  How do you like your frog; broiled or baked? 
Focus on the important things today!  AND please rejoin my mailing list!!

I like your reminder of the "eat that frog" philosophy. I am sorry to hear you lost parts of your blog, we had a storage RAID crash at my home this month and are still trying to determine what we lost and how we can back things up more robustly for the future. Best of luck!

Do we learn more from finding out that we have made mistakes or from our successful actions? Plan your response, and then write an essay.

Thanks for the release. Nice package. You should make it more easy to configure by creating a variable for URLs (as URLs are hardcoded in the package).rnrnGood work anyway

Oh! I can truly understand that disappointments and anxiety. It is not easy getting the blog in place again. rnGiven a little more time I hope you can get things back again as it was.
