Where Do I Start?
Read with an open mind and review what you read carefully.
Often you are caught in life's crossroads. Just check it out.
Do I have a record of everything that belongs to me? For instance, my Passport, Driving License, Bank Accounts, ATM Cards, Credit Cards, Debit Cards, Life Insurance, Personal Medical Insurance, Vehicle Registration and Insurance, Cooking Gas Cylinder Registration, Property, Telephone, Mobile, Marriage Certificate and list could just go on and on.
For a moment imagine that you were away for a while from your home and came back only to learn that your house has been badly affected in the floods that took the city by storm giving little room for anyone to act swiftly. Now where do you start? In case you wish to log in a complaint with the police or lodge a claim with your Insurance company you need to give them the basic details of what could be the possible damage and a list of items or documents that are found missing or in soiled condition.
You would possibly be carrying a few of these documents with you as you may have required them such as your Passport and Driving License for instance. How about the rest? So where do we start? It brings you to crossroads and literally caught up in a jam.
If only you can ensure that you have all the documents scanned and safely put in your personal space in the Internet you can possibly access it from anywhere at anytime. I have safely put all of my documents and the passwords of my Credit Cards and Debit Cards in my mail and consider it to be the safest thing I can think of.
Now that opens up yet another debate. Passwords for your Computer, Passwords for the User, Password for the Internet Service Provider, Password for your mail all of these need to be stored somewhere so that you can then access all of your documents and passwords of your Credit Cards and Debit Cards from the Server on the World Wide Web.
So do you suggest I carry everything with me always? Should I then store it in my mobile? What if my mobile phone is lost? Should I then store the Password of my mobile lock in my wallet? What if I lost my wallet? The more you think of safeguarding your assets the more complicated it gets.
In a catastrophe you will be totally lost and will not be able to think normally, hence, act now. Whatever be your method of protecting everything that belongs to you, take acute care in designing or developing a foolproof system that will come handy.
