Completing Three Major Projects in One Year

I think it’s important to brag about any project that you manage to take from idea to completion. Many people (myself included) have a ton of ideas, few of which become something, and even fewer of which are actually finished and out there. So you should take any opportunity you get to shout out anything you’ve completed.

Built a website? Cool. Remodeled your kitchen? Nice. Wrote a short story? Awesome. Get out there and tell people!

I know the feeling of wanting to start something new every day just to forget about any mistakes you might have made in the previous day. It’s all about start, start, start. It’s never about finish, finish, finish. I guess sometimes we feel like “new” is better than “old” even if that “old” thing has potential.

Without further ado, these are three major projects that I managed to complete in late 2015 and early 2016. They’re not much, but hey, they’re mine!

Security, insurance, encryption, and your expensive belongings

People these days tend to buy a lot of gadgets and electronics. Between our smart phones, televisions, cars, computers, tablets, and e-readers, the expense can add up. Many times, we overlook the importance of cataloging everything that we own for various reasons.

First, it keeps us honest. Do we really need another iPhone if we just bought one a year ago? Probably not. Your stash in our service will remind you of when you purchased something (provided you are honest).

Second, theft and loss are real things. We like to pretend that bad things will never happen to our expensive stuff, but it can and probably will. A phone that costs $600 is not something to take lightly, especially if your daily activities require a lot of movement. Documenting the condition of your belongings, when you purchased them, the purchase receipts, and any other details about them can help with police reports and your home or rental insurance.

Third, it’s quite convenient and safe to store your information in online stash. You can pull up your stash on any device that you own immediately. You don’t have to go searching through paper receipts, pulling out the TV to find out what model you have, or go digging through your file cabinets. Everything in your stash is ready for you and secured with multiple levels of security.
