The Beautiful Blue Box

 Remember the truism that you don't lose anything in a fat file. 

That's quite true.

It's when you get clever and create a bunch of small files that things can go missing.

I strayed from my use of project boxes and paid the price with wasted time.

Having switched to a new computer, I assumed that when the storage software said all of the files had been shifted to the new machine, that was indeed the case.

Not so. One invoice was missing, and I needed to locate it over the holidays. I conducted searches and nothing surfaced until I began to review the paper files. 

Thar she be.

I still have no idea why one invoice out of many was not moved to the new computer. I know the document was saved.

The good news is that a beautiful blue project box now holds all of the important documents for that client.

And every time I see it, I smile.
