It is interesting how much we take for granted, especially when using all of our online tools. We simply expect them to be running smoothly at all times. We depend on these online tools. When something like today's Gmail outage comes along, we don't know what to do with ourselves. Will we ever learn? This has happened before, only seven months ago. If you don't have a backup plan, then now is the time to start planning for the next big outage. That brings me to the bigger lesson.
The unexpected can occur in all aspects of life. Your job, home, relationship, health, and even worse. Do you have a backup plan for anything? Let me know how you've planned for the unexpected in your life?
