Our goal is nothing more then to help People and Humankind to Evolve and be the best it can be and better. Seems we aren’t doing that good of a job so a ‘Hard Reset’ is needed.

So what is a Hard Reset? Below is a brief explanation to assist you:

Hard Reset in Technology

A Hard Reset in technology typically refers to restoring a device to its original factory settings. This process wipes all data, settings, and applications that were added after the device left the manufacturer, essentially returning it to the state it was in when first purchased. This is in contrast to a soft reset, which simply restarts the device without affecting the data or settings.

How to Perform a Hard Reset (in the usual environments)

  • Smartphones/Tablets: Often involves holding a combination of buttons (like power and volume buttons) to access the reset menu.
  • Computers: May involve pressing a specific key during startup (such as F8) or using recovery software.
  • Other Devices: Consult the device manual or support website for specific instructions.

Common Reasons for a Hard Reset

  • Troubleshooting: Fixing severe software issues that can’t be resolved by a simple restart.
  • Performance Issues: Restoring speed and functionality by removing accumulated data and apps.
  • Security: Erasing personal data before selling or disposing of a device.
  • Clean Slate: Starting fresh, free from previous configurations and data.

Hard Reset as a Metaphor for Life

The concept of a hard reset can also be applied metaphorically to life and how we approach challenges and personal growth.

Life Hard Reset Scenarios

  • Major Life Changes: Moving to a new city, starting a new job, or ending a significant relationship can serve as a hard reset, giving one a fresh start.
  • Personal Transformation: Adopting a new lifestyle, such as through significant changes in health, habits, or mindset.
  • Crisis Recovery: Overcoming major setbacks, such as financial loss, illness, or personal trauma, and rebuilding from the ground up.
  • Intentional Reboot: Taking deliberate steps to simplify and declutter life, akin to minimalism, where one sheds unnecessary possessions and commitments.

Benefits and Drawbacks


  • Clarity: A fresh start can provide mental and emotional clarity.
  • Opportunity: Opens up new possibilities and paths that were previously blocked.
  • Renewal: Revitalizes motivation and energy.


  • Loss: Sacrificing familiarity and comfort.
  • Uncertainty: Facing the unknown can be daunting.
  • Effort: Rebuilding and adapting can be challenging and time-consuming.


Whether in technology or life, a hard reset signifies a profound return to basics, offering an opportunity to start anew. It involves letting go of the old and embracing the potential of a fresh beginning, be it through restoring a device to its factory settings or making significant changes in one’s personal or professional life.
