If you didn’t show up at the office one day, because something came up so suddenly that you just couldn’t warn anybody it was coming, what would happen? I bet there’s already a plan in place so that people could cover the most important functions, at least in the short term.
Meanwhile, your home life is more important, but if you suddenly couldn’t get to your house or in touch with your family one day, what would happen?
I’m not talking about anything dramatic here. Does someone else know how to pay the bills, feed the cat, or whatever else you’ve always done around the house?
You might remember that I once left behind hidden written instructions before I vacationed in Hong Kong, just in case I didn’t return. Hidden in case I did. When I made my decision, I emailed a buddy saying “Look in the closet behind my desk…”
Can you do that? Will you time it right? Will the instructions still be up to date? Will you forget something? Don’t you just wish someone who’s thought about this stuff more than you could give you a simple checklist?
Visit TheTorch.com. I didn’t write it. I’m not that organized. But I did join it recently.
You don’t share anything confidential, by the way. You tell someone where the confidential stuff is.
The instructions say it’s easy. It is. You fill in some notebooks, checklist simple, and they’re not intimidating at all the way I thought they’d be. The Torch does all the thinking so you don’t have to. Damn this stuff’s easy.
The Torch estimates fifteen minutes or less. That’s probably accurate. I only needed five or ten myself, but I’m more organized than you. And The Torch is more organized than either of us. Sign up for the free trial and see what you think.
Oh, I can guess what you’ll think. You’ll think it’s easy, kinda fun, and kinda cool. You’ll feel relieved and proud and wonder why it took you so long.
