Last night I watched a TED Talk where a psychologist said you should expect the things you want, and that way you are more likely to achieve them.
So I started expecting to get paid for my work. I expect it. I expect people will pay me honestly.
So far, it seems to have only partially worked::
I logged into my OUYA/Cortex Dev portal today and found that 16 games had been downloaded today ---- Usually my reports from Cortex dev portal are not so active and may even be a little sketchy ---
So good:: 16 games Downloaded.
10 of the games downloaded were PAY-UP-FRONT games ---- which should have totalled to $15 of sales for me.
So:: Some expectation came true --- maybe I should expect proper reporting as well.
I was previously told that Cortex or OUYA might give away some free copies of my games to the press ---- well, I see a lot more free games being given away than games I'm being paid for --- Is the press really that cheap????
Anyway ---- So however this works, I started expecting to be paid last night, and now today I see 16 game downloads which should have been worth at least $15 ----- Now I have to expect a proper royalty report too I guess.
So, something is going on, and again, I can think of possible reasons why it's so hard to get paid --- but maybe I'll just try this psychologist's trick of expecting payment and expecting proper reporting.
I expect it.
