The xkcd comic today says it all, which actually got me thinking about writing this post
Funny, yes. I think sometimes everything just needs to be reset back to zero. I remember back in the day, trying to beat Metroid on the NES and having to leave the NES on for days without shutting it off. Sometimes it would lock up – hit reset. Your computer every day, you probably reboot – time to reset! Development projects – usually they get to a point where there is so much bloat – for small programs and large (Vista was Microsoft’s attempt at a reset) – and you just say, lets start from scratch again, we can do it better.
High school to college – reset. When you move somewhere new – reset. Every year you have your birthday, xmas, new years – reset’s. Sometimes in relationships it is best to just reset – start over, forgive and forget, get back to ground zero – reset. Every day you wake up is another reset, another day to try something new, make something better.
Sometimes things just need to be reset, just to be reset – like the sign above. 2008 is right around the corner, and the new year is usually a good time to reset those bad habits, or just reset goals and timelines, and just get a fresh look on everything going on, should be an exciting year…
