Always backup your work. If your writing a Word doc or Spread Sheet save it with a file name when you create it then hit save frequently. Also save your most important files to a 2nd source and a 3rd offsite source if it is very important. Never know when you will lose power. This goes for those who write code or config gear.
If you write code -- any code, and aren't using source control you should quit and go work at McD's because you have completely, utterly failed at your job.
