If you recently had a problem with the front door of your business it was because of a known problem. You probably have worn out hinges, Hi I am Sally owner of Sally's Pizza best pizza in town. I got stuck with a problem last winter. Usually, my front doors work fine and people are happy to swing them passing in and out of the store. Some hungry for pizza, some deliver the pizza to the customers. Some even eat the pizza on their way out of the store as they push and swing the door open.
I learned my lesson through my mistakes, every time that the story goes on. I wake up to a new problem and some don't have solutions, but this problem was, in particular, very annoying. What it has to do with continuous hinges you ask? Well.
It was a very quiet morning on the second of January of the beginning of 2020, some people still sleep as 8 am approaches, some people rush their minds up to their targets, some just live to breathe and find all the little things they need to survive. But back to me, here I was in front of my store staring at was unfolding in front of me, you see I was exposed to things way too early in my life to my view. And because of my early exposure which I wasn't mature enough to handle I am definitely able to say I have made some mistakes. Mistakes which are a part of me, which sadly make me who I am.
So somethings aren't good to be discovered early, but nature is such that there is a paradox, so in the same world at the same time other rules of nature exist. Early exposure to certain information, can save you time, it might save your career, it might save your life. I wasn't aware of the fact that my hinges are rusty and they are so worn out that they can be snapped with significant ease. "They snapped them.." I thought.
I had a break-in, now it's time to figure it out, what I should have done in the first place. How I should have managed my life and time or maybe paying to much attention to the spiritual rather than the physical things which are around, like the problems which are waiting to be solved at the hands of a procrastinator? All of those things come to mind when you are robbed, it is only when bad things happen we are able to beat ourselves up and rethink the way we prepare ahead. But hear this, I am warning you this is a repetitive pattern only broken by passing the message on and on.
"Prepare better, install stronger hinges in fact maybe even continuous hinges." said the guy from the local lock company. I am always local, I make pizza for people, me and continuous hinges have more differences than locksmith and pizza but that day that locksmith was in fact lucky, he got a very nice slice of pizza and a pop too!
He spent extra time to educate me about the types of hinges and continuous hinges and how they work and carry heavy doors. Continuous hinges last long and carry heavier doors and all that information was among the words the locksmith guy was saying.. Very technical and complicated.
The burglars didn't take much, just my pride. My trust in people, but hey not all people. I don't trust thieves anymore, I know what you will say. I guess it has to happen to some, and they learn, not that robberies exist but they learn to be more resilient or prepared for next time, so I guess there needs to be the last time as well. Sad reality. We make it happy. Using knowledge, problem solving and trust. Those who don't carry that message will be out thanks to CCTV, continuous hinges and local locksmiths I trust to install them.
And, when I am done crying about the pains of life as I learn my lessons, what doesn't kill me, in fact, makes me more alive and stronger. Like continuous hinges, evolved over time to be strongest ever!"
When you're wondering about CCTV systems you need to get one right away, and your best bet is either to buy them on Online in places such as Costco or directly from Lorex but prepare yourself ahead of time because there are cheap home security solutions as well as those costly solutions that actually do a better job in most cases. Saving money or saving a headache is your decision. Why do you need a CCTV Kitchener?
1 - Once you move into Kitchener you realize you need a CCTV then you need installers to come around and install your CCTV in the best way possible. Some chose large security companies over self sufficiency at home however sometimes you need to secure a home office or a private space and at that point you need a high tech system to cover your precocious space. CCTV Kitchener is definitely on your side!
2 - Best cameras are the ones you pick yourself, however we do supply cameras which support 4k and HD quality broadcast. Those you pick yourself could be installed by CCTV Kitchener in no time.
3 - Location Location Location - You need CCTV Kitchener because you need good locations for those cameras, good locations picked - good angles taken. Our techs team knows those places where the bad guys try to hit when penetrating your space.
4 - WiFi- you do need some Wi-Fi connectivity and CCTV which has capabilities to be monitored remotely including video monitoring. If motion is too much for you it ain't too much for CCTV Kitchener and we supply those too. But going basic, wi-fi connectivity soon will become the only way to do it. Both for installation and monitoring broadcast.
5 - Lastly, to buy local! Because surely other economies can benefit less and our local Canadian economy can benefit more! So. You'll need that CCTV, get them here. Pay here and call a local service professional to install it!
When you're thinking CCTV and wondering why you need to have CCTV Kitchener do it for you is simply because if you were in Guelph you would be looking for a Guelph locksmith not a Kitchener locksmith to services your CCTV needs!
There are some tough decisions we have to face day by day, as we remain the same and reality is continuously changing around us we must remain calm and confident in our steps.
The problem with being nervous and agitated is that it influences your actions way further than you think. There are master tactics in how to manipulate one's mind into doing something or perhaps believing something. Those people become famous by mastering these tactics. But the real masters of this infinite repetitive human nature is us. We manipulate ourselves far more than we think.
This would usually happen if you are under pressure or perhaps discomfort, a response which was wired in your mind long before you got to, right now. We are different not only by the knowledge we gain but also by the way it has been embedded in our mind when we processed it at first. Knowledge is sticky. Real knowledge is irreversible.
Imagine needing a locksmith in Waterloo ON for example and you would look for the one you desire without knowing for certain what experience you might process. As you are in a rush to enter your property you browse through your available locksmith services using your typical methods of trusted resources of information.
If you are nervous, then you are in a position to rush and gamble on your experience. If you do remain calm and simply weigh your options first you can figure out the most
Ever heard a commercial which promotes "fast decision takers" type of lingo, every time I hear one of those it sound to me like (No offence) "fast decision making=hasty" hold on a second.
Always pause, for maybe a few minutes and re-think. What type of locksmith service near me would I desire, the one which will provide you with the best customer experience.
As a business you are probably on a constant rush and decision making can be such difficulty that often you just hope to get the right locksmith service this time. It all depends on how you do your research. Maybe recognize a pattern and develop your own understanding and then make your decision. After you checked it through.
For businesses commercial locksmith is a special relationship, you always need one locksmith in Waterloo on standby to run your business and have door maintenance available in case!
Since Then Memo 10
This is the last memo, from the series of memos of EA Locksmith on Weebly.com
Nothing has changed, except the puzzle box it knows a lot more. Same human limitations and time boundaries. No matter how much I try I can't seem to shake off the stress which is preventing me from functioning. Thought control is by the strong minded but who becomes a strong minded on his own? The one who appreciates the practice.
As 2018 begins we understand that we are in the new era and it's still too early to tell which way humanity is going. What sure is that at the moment humanity is more concerned about anything else but what's important, it is concerned about self. In fact there is so much noise that it is hard to really figure which way it is going. Kind of like a developing rolling story, which is developing for quite some time now.
Since then, I learned that friends are only those who can offend you and still call you back. I realized that the little things are the big things and the more I spend time on those little things which can make a big difference in ones life.
Since then, everything is different. Perception is different, it changes as you develop a sense of being which some cannot develop in time because their own being was shut due to trauma.
I learned that one's perception of the world can be devastating for another. Actually I learned that a while ago. Back when being yourself was simply not an option.
This year I learned how strong a woman can be, going through different stages and challenges of painful recovery. Just to become the best mom in the world. Sometimes the same person you are angry with can make you feel completely differently the next day if only given the chance.
Since then I learned to block the noise, many try to mess with you. Many try to get your attention and distract you from what really matters, blocking distractions can be painful to some but it is the only way to successfully navigate you through your day. Since then everything is different, it is not better or worse, it is the present the occuring reality which we are all part of.
Our minds have many tasks, no wonder we get locked out or lose our keys in times. Over time I started to believe that there is no solution to our minds problems ability to stay connected and pay complete attention as things slip through our hands without control. Only trust yields results and often require in a locksmith situation. Recently when conversing with one of my customers in Waterloo I realized that she couldn't find me when searching the term "Locksmith Waterloo"; "too many distractions" she said and smiled as I read her thought. She knew the value of trust right there and then, she could read it from my eyes.
Since then, I learned not to focus on things like money; not because money is not important but only the result. Focusing on the result rather than the process is a big mistake in my opinion and as soon as I have realized it my life has changed.
You might own a business, the business might gone through changes. You might have gone through a rough path. As a locksmith in Waterloo and the area the business is a great challenge, many setbacks and difficulties to overcome. Supply and demand fluctuate constantly. You might be locked out in Waterloo and not able to easily find a reliable locksmith yet you could be located elsewhere and there are too many locksmiths available. There is always some sort of imbalance but somewhere in the middle all of this evens out as the magnitude shifts course. All the sudden the phones are ringing non-stop and you won't see me for another 6 months. No matter how turbulent your business is remember that learning to fly in rough turbulence is awakening and awakening is good because you have survived.
No predictions, you know when you play chess. How many moves ahead you can actually predict or calculate, think about it like a game within a game. Play chess with a friend and think as many moves ahead potential on the board as possible and only then make a decision. For some brains this type of exercise can be excruciatingly painful. I tried it many times in the past, perhaps some more of these visions wouldn't hurt. It's because your opponents are things like time, distractions, life facts and physical boundaries that you are bound by. So you actually have to navigate this way in order to make it through and even as you fall on your falls you still manage to push the king into a corner and pull a draw in hopes to recover the next game.
This type of thinking can help you avoid a lockout in Waterloo or make a smart decision when hiring a local locksmith in Waterloo after doing your research.
As each new day takes shape, you can be in charge of what happens to you and how it affects others. No matter what it is that you learned since then, make sure that its positive.
Ciao - EA Locksmith
Last Friday Night Lockout - Memo 9
Car lockouts are so common that in Kitchener alone there are at least 2-3 car lockouts a day. I do not want to exaggerate but if you break it down then it’s quite a lot.
It is quite easy to get locked out of your car; you can just leave your keys in the ignition or in your trunk.
A few tips not to get locked out of your car:
1. Get a spare key and hide it somewhere good. You can grab a simple metal key to your car which opens your door only and hide it in a place which no one will figure it’s your car key. I had customers who have had that done.
2. Always remember to check yourself before closing the car door. Some days are very busy and we are distracted yet some of us are obsessed to double check things, if you train your mind to double check before closing your car door you can reassure yourself every time that you’re not locking yourself out.
3. Simply put a note on your dash saying “grab your keys” before you leave the car.
Many ways for not getting yourself locked out, we can wonder all day how many methods exist out there which can save you from being locked out of your car. Eventually you will have to face the fact that we are all human and make little tiny mistakes. Like getting distracted for a second closing our car door and realizing that our doors are locked and the keys are right there on the seat. Now what?!!
Daylight is preferable when trying to get yourself back into your car, at night there are still local Kitchener locksmith services that are open so you might be in luck and while you wait for your locksmith you can think of all the methods you could open your car with if you only had the right tools.
There is the local locksmith and he is here to help, it seems that you can almost do the same thing he just did to open your vehicle. Things look so easy on the outside this fact is known to us all. Until you decide to carry special car lockout tools with you every-were you go, you will need that locksmith as much as you will need your car to be open.
In movies the scenarios are often predicted and the actors are the artists to play it out right and make it look real. In real life your daily scenarios are so unpredictable that it may take a split second to change your reality from being completely flawless with your day to a sticky situation which you never predicted. That’s because your day consist of many important things which are always on your mind, at the same time it also consists of things you usually don’t pay attention to. It can be the wind direction or the cold temperature after a hot day. Many things change on a daily basis; scientists say that even the moon has an effect on your daily activity depending on its position relative to the earth. All of this means that one wrong move and you can get into an accident for example. I wish you none of that but I wish to say beware! Murphy is all about the hunting for your weakness, whatever bothers you today may turn against you throughout the day. Best advice is to be vigilant and pay attention to your surroundings, if you are always checking your reality you’re probably focused on doing what you do. If you focused on thinking about your problems constantly you may appear distracted.
Getting locked out while distracted is very common, many people find themselves locked out or stuck out of their own vehicle because of a distraction or something they were doing wrong while thinking about the wrong things. Sometimes the best medicine is slowing down, look at what you are doing and pay attention to your environment.
Is it too stressful? Do you make decisions out of pressure or out of clear thinking and decision making? Sometimes while playing chess I realize that our brains have a limit when it comes to picking the best decision in a certain situation. While under pressure from the opponent you have to quickly assess the situation and make your move which is supposed to be the best in that equation. Best move is to solve your problem and get out of that mess you are in as soon as possible. Murphy has no empathy to your life problems and neither should you! There is no tolerance for life issues, only solutions. If you got issues you can’t wait for someone to solve them, meaning if you got yourself locked out you have to pay for it one way or another. Paying a locksmith with money to unlock your door can be the same as breaking in yourself and then fixing the damage except this will cost you more money doing it yourself sometimes. Point being is you do not learn unless you face the mistake, pay for it and move on.
Getting yourself out of that sticky situation you got yourself into when you got locked out is calling a professional locksmith is your best bet although not every company is so compassionate. As we all know large money making companies prey on you to get locked out so they can snatch you as a customer for the lowest rate promised and charge you the most when on site. This is just part of what happens when you let Murphy control your life. I’ll tell you a secret, here’s what I always did when there was no work. When Murphy told me I have to sit and wait. I refused and created more work to be busy; being busy attracts Murphy into working for you. Same things apply on anything else. I never want to do what the situation imposes on me; I always want to do things that come to mind at a point in time so I go ahead and do it. For example, if you got locked out and urgently need a locksmith, I would suggest for you to search for the best available and not just someone from the list.
Murphy doesn’t have to be cruel if you’re in control; therefore making a good conscious call is what gets you out of a sticky situation. When you search around your area for a local locksmith you will often spot many companies who may provide great service or so it looks. Always check what the reviews say read the real reviews and see the difference in tones. Second look for a smaller local locksmith company to serve you, simple because a smaller company consists of just a few locksmiths and the communication level is usually better thus the customer service.
Do not fall for X and up pricing simply because you do not control the price when there is no cap. Capping it up could be difficult as well, simply because giving a quote on the phone is difficult and often impossible but a close estimate is in fact an option. There is a difference between 120 dollar lockout and 360 dollar lockout. The difference is that the 120 dollar lockout gets you into the house quicker and saves your lock; the 360 dollar lockout will take more time and will demand a lock change which you only want when you need a locksmith for a lock repair or a lock change, not when you are locked out.
Lastly, while many things that happen land on us from above or from below, most important thing is don’t lose sweat over something you are about to pay for. Your sweat worth more than your money, well at least to yourself! Keep it that way!
March Break Lockout - Memo 7
My name is Dennis, in fact Dennis Kiro. I live in Guelph Ontario and I am a student at the local university. This time of the year I usually enjoy snowboarding and march break with my girlfriend.
Two months ago me and my girlfriend split up and it’s been really hard on me since then, I find myself walking the streets at night and just wondering how my life is going to look like without her. It gets pretty depressing.
Couple of days ago I decided to go snowboarding. I was heading out towards Blue Mountain and I was just putting the board and the boots in the car when I realized that I can’t seem to feel my keys in my pocket. I had realized that I just locked myself out of the house.
I know murphy well and if there is something that known to all of us is that he comes to visit at the worst time. I am so depressed and tired of being beat down by life and all I want is a quite drive and a releasing snowboarding experience.
Guelph is a city which sometimes gives you only so many options to rescue yourself out of a situation.
I had remembered that one of the students got locked out of his room and found a locksmith on kijiji.com which is a local directory for professionals on demand.
I went on KIJIJI and managed to locate this locksmith in Guelph. I called him up and told him I have locked myself out and how stupid I feel right now. He wasn’t quick to judge and told me that it happens to all of us. He reassured me that he will be able to help me.
I thought to myself how hard this line of work is, he must have many customers locking themselves out on a daily basis and he has to leave everything and run to their rescue. I would assume the guy is irritated I have no idea how things will go and most importantly how much I am going to be charged.
The locksmith showed up and he seemed pretty nice, he was well aware of the problem and quickly explained what he needs to do in order to let me in the house. I was amazed how polite someone can be and informative about every step of the way.
I never had to you a locksmith in Guelph before yet here I am just staring at this guy working trying to pick my lock. Probably going to drill it eventually he is just messing with me it’s only possible in the movies I thought to myself. Then, suddenly he turns the lock and Walla! The door is open, I was supper happy. How cool is that, being able to do that and get paid for it.
It’s a trigger in our brain when we hack something, it is a high stimulator and locksmiths have that when picking each lock he explained. I experience it myself, when I crack something new or learn a new trick in my own trade. I feel like we have something in common.
The bill was fair and I could continue my trip to Blue Mountain. The locksmith guy told me to get myself together and remember that break ups happen for a reason. It’s always a new road that teaches us the most – he said.
I was stunned that a trades person who comes to my house in order to provide such technical service ends up talking to me about deep matters like my personal problems. I guess these days customer service rose to a whole new level of satisfaction. Because there are two ways a service can end – either I am in a great mood when the service man leaves, or I am desperate and feeling sad about my existence. Very depressing, but not today since this Guelph locksmith guy left I decided he was in fact correct.
I am going to go and have me some snowboard time so I can release my tensions. Have a good day.
P.s – Thanks for your rescue!
Student Lockouts - Memo 6
This piece right here is about student lockouts. As you know being a student is a tough phase in your life, you are tired of school and studying and you want to try something new. Maybe start a new job or perhaps go to study in a different city or even a different country. Student life is about focusing on your future and also not getting locked out.
It is a daily occurrence that I get to meet new students almost every day, unfortunately not in the best circumstances. Most of my encounters with students are due to a bedroom lockout and the rest are car lockouts and here is what I have noticed. Anyone can get locked out and it happens for one reason and one reason only… distraction. New students get locked out lot more often than senior students, this because it takes time to adjust to changes like a new bedroom or a new city and everything is new and your head is spinning and oops. Lost your car keys or locked yourself out of the bedroom. Now you need a locksmith and you are stressing about the costs. It’s ok perfectly natural daily occurrence after all and many of my customers ask me if it happens all the time. My answer is yes!
Actually, I have a live example from today. Today I got a call and I was surprised to find out that a mother of a student was concerned about her daughter. Her daughter was unable to get into her bedroom and the mother decided to call ahead of time and schedule the appointment for service. It seemed as if it was their first time and it was in fact. She was a newly student and have moved in recently to the area, I asked if it ever happen to her and she replied saying that she got locked out twice since she had moved in. She had locked herself out before and this time she didn’t want to damage anything so her mother decided to call a professional locksmith. Last time she smashed the door, but this time she just paid a bit of money and got her bedroom open clean which turned out to be cheaper.
In conclusion change is something that we struggle to accept and while we are busy accepting it Murphy is quick to throw us a bone! No matter what you are going through there must be another person out there going through the same thing and if you happen to be one of those people who got locked out, well good luck!
Ignition Key - Memo 5
There is nothing sexy about your ignition key, there is nothing sexy about losing it either. The worst is not being able to turn it in your ignition. Yes folks my profession isn’t sexy at all. My daily work is about unfortunate events and there is nothing sexy about it. Many “ignition key” situations leave my customers unable to find their ignition keys or worse, simply unable to use them to switch the ignition on. It isn’t sexy trust me.
“I could never imagine that I can be good at something, then I started trying” — Eli Abbasov
The ignition key:
This ignition key of yours that gets you to places and you know its value. In fact your ignition key perhaps is sexy (even if you drive a piece of junk) your ignition key is what gets you there. Sometimes you find yourself flashing with your ignition key if you drive a fancy car.
I was flashing my ignition keys when I finally had a car! I made sure to share it with everyone “look up guys I have an ignition key” which gives me more chances in life.
Better chance at scoring a date, better chance at scoring a job. Ignition key gave me a chance to do so much more than I could ever do before! It’s stupid how much your ignition key is important. My ignition key got me to meet my wife and see her almost every day although she lived 70km away.
My ignition key helped me get a job and show up on time till I got the hang of the schedule, more to top it off my ignition helped me to have so much more fun in my life! Now you tell me is that sexy enough?
I could never imagine that I will be making ignition keys in a million years. All of my old friends always ask me how it feels to be able to generate new car keys. I tell them that it feels unbelievably satisfying or better say feels like “ecstasy” real euphoric and happy feeling of achievement. The reason being, you have to achieve it all on your own.
Many customers have no idea that to become a good automotive locksmithtaking care of ignition keys, you must put hours days weeks and years into perfecting your abilities. Then one day you get to a job and you succeed in it and you get that punch of euphoria.
Realizing that you have grown your knowledge is one of the most satisfying feelings on earth (especially when you learn it on your own)
A piece of advice to remember — never reject someone’s knowledge. Because the first push is what counts. Listen.
A piece of advice:
Here’s an advice to fresh parents from someone who is about to become a parent himself — “Don’t tell your kids to be better — Show them how to…”
Sometimes you just have to show them the way and I also refer to your friends and family. Never judge a book by its cover, never! Everyone needs a compass in life and you have the power to be that compass — to your kids, your family and to your friends. Real friends will appreciate you for it.
My only compass was care, my mother taught me to care. I wish I had more compasses to show me a better way instead I had to learn from negative and turn it into positive.
Fishing for business — Memo 4
Being a commercial locksmith in Waterloo is a great feeling, I personally got the chance to meet with many great business owners and property managers. While doing calls in Waterloo for the past 4 years I realized that many of the people who decide to move closer to Waterloo do it because of the city’s innovative image.
Waterloo is a city that is always on the go, which makes it hard for businesses to stand out but has large potential. Imagine opening a new business in a city like Waterloo and trying to stand out in the midst of the chaos.
Ideas keep your business alive!I made a little experiment this week to see how businesses respond to a door to door interaction. I printed close to 50 double sided letter brochures for my locksmith Waterloo service and head out for distribution.
I started in the afternoon so things are more relaxed and it was good. Since my brochure looks amazing many businesses were in fact interested in keeping it. Yet, sometimes people do not want to be bothered, so I made sure to be polite and respectful as I have learned to do throughout my locksmith career and beyond.
I was happy to finish the west part of the city, and continued towards uptown Waterloo. I went where I had most chances of business traffic and started distributing around the university area. I must say, a busy city is definitely a rude city. Everyone is busy and no one cares about my locksmith brochure, but then I thought for a second — this is the exact reason no one cares.
How do you turn a busy person into an interested person?
You create a “non-sales-speech” intro — something like “I decided to stop by and give you my brochure just in case!” I mentioned that I do 24/7 locksmith services in Waterloo and I am here to help.
So I walk in, I don’t ask if they want anything and I don’t offer anything. I am just a passing by stranger with a cool looking brochure (that my wife designed for me) who happens to be a locksmith 24/7 and happens to service the uptown Waterloo area. Now that’s how you create an interest. The more random and less predicted your body language is the more interest you can create.
Rests of the businesses in Waterloo were already looking at me differently. I walked in same way, looking around surprised and wondering who I leave my brochure to as I was just passing by. I am all shy quiet and polite but raise my voice if necessary so the waiter or the owner of that business knows the purpose of my visit. My purpose was? Drop an important brochure just in case!
Here is the truth, no one wants to hear your story, simply because we do not have time for everyone’s stories, dreams and hopes. But we can interest each other by taking a different approach and sharing. Meaning that if you show your interest in a business a business might, just might be interested in you and hopefully you will be remembered.
So next time you think that doing business in Waterloo is tough, maybe you need a few creative ideas to make it work simply because creativity keeps your business alive.
Lastly I will say that no matter who you are or where are you from. You can change the course of your business and the course of your life, only when you stop focusing only on money and start looking around for inspiration. Money is important when good is done, good business, good service, professional hands and most of all good hart. Customers can be unpredictable and sometimes you might feel that you are under attack, don’t freeze. The best cure for rudeness is smile.
My conclusion is simple — Hard work+Creativity+Timing=gets you results!
My result was that I had run out of brochures and got declined only 1 time.
I believe an idea needs time to develop and only more work plus time = will tell.
So, business in Waterloo is booming and when you need a quick commercial locksmith service in Waterloo to provide you with a friendly and professional service. You know who to look for.
Thank you and good luck in your business!
