Damage Control

What if you lost your wallet?
Could you remember all the credit cards that may be at risk, not to mention your debit card?

An easy way to save time and lower stress in that situation is to photocopy your credit cards plus any other valuable documents, such as insurance cards and driver’s license. Lay them face down on a flatbed copier. Then turn them all over and copy the backs, which usually have the phone numbers to notify the financial institutions that issued the cards.

Do this at least once a year, depending on how often you get new cards. Put a recurring reminder in your planner or follow-up file.

You might want to keep the copies close to where you do your online ordering if you are in a private office, so the information you need is handy. Just be sure to keep them in a very safe place.

Gain the peace of mind that comes from knowing you can react quickly and diminish the effects of a disrupting event, and enhance Your Quality of Life.


Productivity is never an accident. It is always the result of a commitment to excellence, intelligent planning, and focused effort.
