Where do I start? This last couple of weeks have been horrendous in respect of my computer.
I had the tower built for me to accommodate my specific requirements and for 8 months it has been working well. A couple of weeks ago it began to hang and then there was a shimmer on the screens. The engineer who built it was called and he replaced the video card which he claimed would ‘probably’ fix it. Well, it didn’t. It made it ten times worse. The shimmer was gone, but the computer crashed, and crashed and crashed.
Engineer came back and replaced the power supply and memory cards. ‘That should fix it, otherwise I have no idea’ he said No different, the computer crashed and crashed all over again. But, of course, he had gone by then.
Contacted engineer who claimed that I had told him that he wasn’t fixing the computer in a timely manner. This I had never said or implied, all I asked is that the computer is fixed. He said it would have been fixed sooner if I hadn’t been adamant that it should not be taken away to their workshop. I wasn’t adamant, I said I would prefer that it wasn’t taken away.
So on Wednesday morning I went out and bought a new tower, Kelvin transferred everything to it and I am up and running again. This took most of the day. My work was piling up and I was letting down my coaching clients who I speak with on Skype.
All this hassle, and without the help of my technical genius husband I would be totally stuck. Nothing would get done. Fortunately everything is backed up offsite and retrieving everything was relatively easy.
So computer is being collected on Monday to be diagnosed and ‘fixed’. Meanwhile I am able to work and get on with my daily life and work with my clients using my new computer.
The gift of this situation is that I am able to calmly go about my daily work, even through all this disruption. My experiences and learning mean I don’t freak out, I accept the situation and deal with it calmly and with positivity. Previously I would have freaked out, and run around in circles getting absolutely nowhere.
I have also learned that I can find and download programmes and tools, I am capable and life goes on.
I have some availability for coaching clients, we just need to fix some dates if and when you want to get started. Get in touch today.
