Help Me Find a Parking Spot

Last week I  was sitting in bed, wrapping my brain around a programming problem presented by my newest project. With no warning, someone started pounding on the wall of my RV. No identification, no verbal communication. Just banging on the wall. Within a few seconds someone else started banging on the other side.

Would you open the door? I didn't. I shut my laptop and stayed as quiet as I could. I have light blocking curtains, but I could see that flashlight beams were reaching for the edges of them.

Then I heard someone try to open my driver's side door. It's locked. Then the passenger side. Also locked. I wondered if I remembered to lock the RV door. It gets tried, too, and the intruder can't get in.

Motorcycle Stunts at the Pier in SF

On DROdio

My wife and I were walking along the pier in San Francisco when suddenly, two motorcycle stuntmen started doing tricks in the empty lot next to us, right along the Pier.

I later found out one of the guys, Jason Pullen, is a professional.  This is all he does.  He has sponsors.  And he's truly amazing.  The things he does with a 650 pound Harley are unbelievable.

And it just made me think of my post about 80/20 vs. 1000/100, where I speculated that by focusing intensely on one thing, you can achieve phenomenal results.  Jason is a shining example of that - he does things on a motorcycle that just continue to freak you out, even after he lands his tricks successfully time after time.  In fact, he didn't wipe out once in the 15 minutes we watched him.

    

Here's another one -- sorry video is sideways, turn that laptop on its side!
