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.
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.
We settled in to Portland and biked all over town. Scott & Chelsea visited in Mexico.
The Work and The Results are two different things. You can’t say “I want to do the results.” You can only say “I’m going to do the work.” You might want to accomplish the results, but results only happen because of the work you do.
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.
Tell me if this sounds familiar. You start working on a new task, which requires you to do some research or look something up.
