Computers can be incredibly frustrating. Just ask this blogger about his experiences with his own computer. Between the various glitches, bouts with freezing, lost files and out-of-the-blue shutdowns, it’s enough to make you want to pick your computer up and throw it out the window. Not before stomping on it a few times, of course. But even your blogger has to admit that there are better ways to resolve computer issues.
As a business owner, you need your computer. It’s practically impossible to run your business without the many advances in technology that have been put in place to help our lives get easier. But when such technologies only work to make our lives harder, there are some measures we must to take to resolve our issues – without causing any destruction of valuable equipment. Here are a few helpful practices.
Get Educated. It’s not always the most fun task to undertake, but it’s important to get as much information as possible about how your computer works. What do you generally use it for on a daily basis? In what ways can you use it so that it’s as helpful as possible without causing you much stress? Read the manuals. Research your specific brand online. Take a training tutorial with a knowledgeable friend. The more you know, the less you’ll stress!
Buy A Good One. Non-computer geeks (no offense) don’t generally put a lot of stock into the types of computers that they decide to buy. You don’t want run-of-the-mill equipment to run your business. So do your research and locate a style of computer that will best suit your needs. Do you prefer a desktop or laptop? Will you need to do a lot of downloading and video streaming? Answering these and other questions will help you to choose wisely.
Back Up Your Files. There’s nothing worse than losing all of that work you’ve completed because none of it was backed up! Make backing up your files part of your regular routine. Yes, there are many advantages to doing everything on the computer these days. But unlike the days when you would often put pen to paper, backing up your precious work is necessary so that it is not accidentally lost forever.
Practice Calming Techniques. Get a stress ball. Buy a punching bag. Play soothing music. Watch something funny. Phone a friend. The list could keep on going. Find what makes you relax and forget about what has gotten you so frustrated. When you’re not a computer expert, you tend to think that your computer is out to get you. Your blogger has been there. Take it easy. It’s not worth losing your mind over!
