When to Push the Future and When to Sit on the Beach

Morning Folks!!


The world is lined with the carcases of hard workers with the bad timing. For 18 years I had to hear the accusatory tone in defending why I would not develop or invest in big money to develop future substandard websites. That period is now over. Never will I have to answer that nonsense again.


My journey begins after those that asked those questions are nowhere to be found. Gone with wind. They prepared for a sprint, I prepared for a marathon. But I also saw a shorter path with less resistance. The only thing I had to do was be patient, sit the race out for the first 18 years so when I rejoined the pack, I would be in the right place at the right time..


So I am off the beach for the first time. But still won't do it their way. Still will do it the way I see fit. Each great domain with a great partner. Same thing will happen with many other domainers that also saw a different path.


The point is ALL PATHS are now converging and this is the time to get serious.


Timing IS everything. It always has been and it always will be. I don't know how many times I have talked just about timing.


Look at sport. Football is not about timing? Catching a pass. Kicking the football.


Hitting the ball in baseball is not about timing? Catching the ball is not about timing?


Basketball is not about timing?


You can't be accurate unless you time things right no matter what it is in life.


But timing is nowhere to be found in so many businesses. It's a foreign language. It's a threat. See you can't worry about timing when you are only focused on budgets and deadlines.


So while others focus on budgets and things that are distractions, my only focus is on the timing.


My main argument with so many things domaining is timing and audience size combined with buying power. No argument all all as far as I am concerned. It is just math to me. I focus on an audience size of about 1.5 Billion. That leaves 5.5 billion I will never tap into nor do I want to. We all have our fishing holes and I have picked mine.


The first criteria is that the event predicted happens in your lifetime!! Right?
Isn't that a critical criteria? One that can't just be brushed aside like so many do?


If it takes 20 years just to get to the leasing stage........why would you not expect things to be another 20-40 years before getting all blossomed out? Or not.


Leasing domains is going to be one of those overnight successes that took 20 years!! Just look! Can't you see what I see?? Can't you? This is nothing invented. This is real and do you really think I would expend so much energy on something if I did not clearly see how it is going to unfold over the next 2-3 years? All I can say is this is the single biggest piece of the puzzle there is. The game is changing. It is clearly changing before your very eyes!


On the record for the record. Time stamped. Believe me, I don't care if you lease by yourself or via JointVentures.com or whoever. But EVERY parked domain should be offered for lease not just to sell. Want to transform your future?? How much easier could it be??

    Timing IS everything…and with a little bit of luck.
    Sold all my stocks in 2007/8 and gradually put back in 2010 and now my portfolio is up 40%
    Yes, I am at the beach everyday with a glass of wine watching the sunset.
