A package went missing around Christmas this year, so I bought a Dropcam Pro to keep an eye on our front entryway. Last night I got a notification of activity, around 9:45pm, while we were out with friends. I couldn’t believe the video.
See for yourself:
Today I called the police, who sent over an officer. He’s going to circulate the video and see if this is a known thief in the area (we’re in SE Portland, near Hawthorne/Division). I’m also replacing our mailbox with a locking type, and will be instructing all the delivery carriers not to leave anything when we’re away.
As for the packages, Amazon has already refunded one of them. We’re calling the other vendors to see what our options are.
Any project or system that involves people, no matter how well-intentioned, eventually loses luster once the initial excitement and momentum wears off. Everything becomes a job after long enough, no matter how infatuated you were in the beginning.
We settled in to Portland and biked all over town. Scott & Chelsea visited in Mexico.
Every creative person, every entrepreneur and everyone who tries something new needs to realize and accept this. Your work is going to suck in the beginning.
View this post on Instagram I’ve dealt with depression my whole life. Sometimes it gets the better of me for weeks or months on end.
Motivation is a funny thing. We can feel sluggish, depressed, tired and unmotivated towards the work we *know* we want/need to get done.
I read last week that a record number of people are leaving their jobs. They’re leaving because we’re in a tight labor market right now, and finding a better job is easy.
