To Me, this is Not New Year’s Eve 2019. It’s the Start of the Countdown to 2020!!

Morning Folks!!

I look at the world differently than the average Joe. I have been scorned all my life for doing it. But this is just another form of drilling down and looking at things differently than the masses. You know, the folks wired by other people to do things they want them to do when they want them to do it, how they want them to do it and how they must dress and where they must do it from. AKA a SLAVE to a job not in your complete control but controlled by another.

The game of life is to work hard, get rewarded, live good and save so when you are old and frail you are not in a desperate state. Many never achieve that. But many never think much about that either.

I have an inquisitive mind. I ask a lot of questions and then see if the answers pass the common sense test.

So, now it is time to understand how I tick. I am always early and never late. Very early. In this case I am vaulting over 2019 and I begin my countdown to 2020. It's just a different way of looking at something. But it's also valid and accurate and rewarding.

My time horizons consist if minute by minute stuff. Hour by hour stuff. Day by day, week by week, month by month and year by year. I have also demonstrated I can do decade by decade. Just depends which lens I want to use. My box is full of different lenses to see different things. Just like an astronomer might do to see different and distant places. Anything from a binocular to a Hubble Telescope. TIME works much the same way.

I got into domains because of the lens I was looking thru. But beware of the rear view mirror. That does not tell the future. That chases yesterday and the shiny objects that go with it. Study HISTORY and that does not happen via a rear view mirror. You have to DOVETAIL history with the future. It's always about the future but that future is always based and built on history.

What happens when you are driving? The steering wheel on a car is you ticket to the future is it not?? Every foot you drive, every mile is a step to the future. What if you take your hands off the steering wheel and use the rear view mirror to steer the car? Here is a hint, it won't end well. You will crash. That's exactly what happens with so many in life itself. In business and in personal circumstance.

So an important piece of the puzzle in finding wealth and finding success and finding new horizons and new inventions and new opportunities and new whatever is to RISK thinking differently and being ridiculed for it. Ridiculed by folks that could learn a thing or two but are too busy being stuck on a rat wheel.

So enjoy 2019!! I am on to 2020 and I'll let you know how it's going from the vantage point and my lens set to look back on 2019 not to react to it!

    Yes, must of the people in today’s world are not even able to think for themselves. A lot of people do what they are told without questioning. I call them “assimilated”. They go with the pack , most of the time they have no clue why they are followers. The government has done a great job for “endoctrinement” of people. Even in the modern days of today, a lot of people are slave without knowing it.

    i invite everyone to visit my website at and start thinking.

    You have a way of writing this post as a farewell until 2020.

    If so, believe that you find missing his provocative writing and in the day to day in what you learn from you and I have done it during the year 2018

    That you have the good year 2019.

    Happy Day. Jose.

    This article is written for the average joe. However if you paid 300k for a Harvard education. One of the things taught is a “change of perspective” This is very important. How do you look at things. Now in the US we are going to have a huge change in perspective in 2020.
    The democratic candidate is going to make climate change the central theme of their campaign. The complete opposite of prez Trump. Current polls indicate 70% of the US population thinks climate change is real and man made.
    And it is far better to be early than late. I disagree with you. When you got involved with domains in 1995 That was a huge advantage and cannot be duplicated. You used your business acumen and savvy applied to an emerging industry domains. The same could be done today in ai, augmented reality, blockchain,and iot
