Computer In The Shop? What Do You Do Now?
Have you ever had one of those days when you just feel like something is missing? ? something just doesn't feel right? like you should be doing something but you can't remember what?
Well, I had one of those days recently? my computer was in the shop for a minor repair. Ahhhhh! What was I going to do?
Ok, so I planned to take my computer in for the repair. Then I would go shopping for my daughter's birthday present and have lunch with my husband. But, that still left half a day. No problem. That was taken care of as my phone continued to ring even without my computer there. But, the whole time I felt like something was missing.
Why are we so dependent on our computers? Why do our routines feel completely out of whack if we don't have our trusty keyboard and mouse?
In today's high tech society, a computer is a common site in most homes and nearly all businesses. Everyone and his brother has access to these electronic lifelines and most depend on them to help run their lives smoothly.
For any entrepreneur who relies on the virtual work for business, when our computers are unavailable, we can be at a loss as to what we can do. So, the following is just a few ideas of what we can do during the time that you would normally be on your computer.
1. Get out of your office!
2. Run some errands.
3. Spend some quality time with your family.
4. Clean up your office.
5. Write an article.
6. Catch up on phone calls.
7. Give your home a little spring clean.
8. Do something nice for yourself.
These are just a few ideas to help you stay productive, in one form or another, while you are without your computer.
But, one thing to remember if you are going to be unavailable for any length of time? advise your clients and contacts of your down time. Send an email to all of them advising them that you will be out of the office or just without a computer for a few days. This way, should they happen to send an email to you for whatever reason, they will know why you didn't respond to them right away.

How many times does an artist stare down at that blank piece of paper thinking "What on earth do I paint - Where do I put my first mark?" More often than you would imagine!
