I know some people who walk and always look down at their toes and seem to always have bruises on their foreheads. Should I suggest they raise their level of their eyes to avoid that pain and the chances are the anger will be directed at the person telling them that. However a simple adjustment can change your destiny.
But let's be honest, we all have our heads looking at a different point in the future. Whether it just be for the hour, the day, the week, the weekend, the first of the month when the bills are due. April 15th when taxes are due. Sales this year vs last year and planning for next year.
My focus is probably all of the above. However I spend time each day planning for 12, 18 even 36 months into the future. I tend to "vault over" those canyons of bad business. That is the time I just sit back a bit and relax. Make hay when the sun shines and realize when it is raining you need to do something else or just go play.
Every TLD other than .com sells for less than .com. The counterpart of ANY domain name has more value with a .com on the end than .anything else. Guess what, it likely will not change in the lifetime of anyone reading this. So those that plan for 100 years from now, well you will be dead. The second coming seldom comes and when it does, it could be way past your life expectancy.
So in the late 90's and early 2000's when there was still PLENTY of .com domains around to build an empire, some focused on .biz, .info, etc and they are still waiting for their ship to come in. The POINT I always tried to make over the 15++ years is don't settle for the cheap seats when the box seats were there for the taking. Gold and diamonds were in the mine but some focused on the next big thing. TIN!
Tin has value. But when tin and gold sit right next to each other it is very hard to convince me that tin is better.
So here we are. .Whatever sells for 1%-10% of a .com IF you can even sell it. When and IF .whatever is EVER on PAR with .com, most reading this will be dead. Here's to your health and wealth!
Have a GREAT Day!
