During the 2000 – 2002 period, one Euro was worth less than a Dollar and that made sense. After all, the Dollar is the world’s reserve currency and it has been around for a considerably longer period than the Euro. But something happened and during certain periods of 2008, the Euro ended up costing almost 1.6 Dollars.

If you can help someone, do it. A lot of times, the little things count.
If you notice that a domain a friend/contact of yours most likely wants is on the market (maybe that first person’s first+last name combo, for example), let him or her know.

… yeah right!
Let’s assume you’re selling, I don’t know… coconuts.
Now let’s assume someone got sick after eating one of your coconuts and that the story has been picked up by all local TV stations, newspapers, websites and so on.

As domainers and/or entrepreneurs, we’re often tempted to adopt an “I know everything” mentality. After all, we’re involved in the world’s most dynamic industry and all that. We’re smart, we’re ambitious… but we don’t know everything. We just don’t.

… yes, this post is about sleep. In 2013, I decided that it’s time to start sleeping like a normal person. As you know, I’m not from the US and since I’m in a different time zone, it’s easier (in most cases) to communicate with others by basically “adopting” the US time zone.

A lot of times, being genuinely helpful can be extremely profitable. You might just be making the best investment of your career… without knowing that you’re making an investment. A lot of people adopt an “I can’t be bothered to…” selfish attitude and it’s an understandable human instinct. But don’t make the mistake of underestimating the importance of networking.

Is it just me or is the general population becoming dumber and more shallow with each day that passes? In my own country, we had *one* TV station which was considered tabloid-ish a few years ago and everyone made fun of it. Now, *all* TV stations (ok, almost) are like that. I don’t live in the US but I’ve been following the US entertainment industry as well and it seems the situation is similar.

In my opinion, emotional attachment can be a good thing as well as a bad thing, it all depends on the context. On the one hand, you have to be passionate about what you do for a living but on the other hand, when it’s time to exit (aka sell your domains or websites), letting emotional attachment cloud your judgement would be a mistake.

Today’s post will be very short and I just thought I’d write it to make it clear that there are two investments people don’t pay enough attention to: the chair they sit on and the mattress they sleep on. All in all, most individuals spend over 50% of their life sitting in a chair + sleeping on a mattress, so why are these two investments (yes, investments) frequently overlooked?

In life, I’d advise against being the type of person who *only* thinks about negative aspects but on the other hand, not being realistic can have repercussions which can be just as severe. As someone who earns a living online, you’re constantly bombarded by the two extremes and that’s dangerous to say the least.
Both extremes cloud your judgement.
