This is a little grim, I guess, but what have you done to prepare for possibility -- remote as it may be -- that you one day you couldn't come home?
For most of us, a living will, life insurance and a list of our credit cards and other obligations are probably enough. For those of us with small businesses, customers, confidential data, and other people counting on us it may be important to go a step further. I've been working on a "just in case" packet, to be kept locked away in a safe place where my wife can find it in the event something were to happen and I couldn't get home. In this packet, I'm trying to place a list of contacts, critical passwords, server details, and other things so that my wife would be able to have the important things taken care of and not have to worry about them. For me, this even includes having spoken to trusted friends in the industry so that if they ever get that call they won't get taken by surprise. I hope to have everything I need so that someone can at least take over, or shut things down smoothly without leaving my customers in the lurch.
It's not an easy plan to come up with, and I'm curious -- how many of you have done something similar? You can't plan for everything -- sometimes, things just happen.
