Life Principles - Learning

Developing a learning mindset.

Learning is my third life principle and is the key that you can use when you feel like you have failed. By developing a learning mindset and lifestyle you open yourself up to the incredible opportunity of understanding who you really are.

When I was still in high school, I would bring home at test result of 97% and right after encouraging me my mother would ask me, “What happened to the 3%?” You may think this was harsh but what it highlighted to me was that I knew the 97% and my future learning was going to come from the 3%.

Over the decades this mindset has been invaluable in my own personal development. In this video I openly share some of my own experiences in wrestling with learning. I hope they help you in coming to grips with your own life journey.

Have a great weekend!
Michael

Domain Industry Update - Week 17

What an amazing week it's been!

The data this week has the potential to be a real bellwether for the domain industry in the coming months. The tussle between Google and the direct advertising networks is really hotting up.

I’m still wondering what’s going to happen to all of the unspent marketing dollars that were slated for Facebook by some of the big corporates. Will it head towards Google and ultimately into the pockets of domain investors? The coming weeks will tell a very interesting tale.

I know that a number of domain investors have lost loved ones to COVID-19. I would like to pass on my sincerest condolences to you and your families. With all of the statistics we mustn’t lose sight of the fact that COVID is indiscriminately impacting the friends and families of some in our great industry. I would encourage everyone to reach out to someone that you know and make sure that they are OK.

Life Principles – Trust

Trust is the basis of every relationship.

Trust is the second Life Principle that forms the bedrock of my own life. All relationships are built upon a basis of the truth (from the previous week’s video) and trust. In fact, you could also say that society is built upon an unspoken contract of trust.

When I look at the world today one of the things that dismays me the most is the assault upon the bonds of trust between us. COVID-19 has brought about an air of suspicion where people are fighting for the “I” rather than the “we”. You can witness this behavior at supermarkets as shelves are emptied in a frenzied zeal to protect “me”.

What makes a person trustworthy and how can we become more trustworthy ourselves? In this video I outline the characteristics of trustworthy people and what I personally look for in someone that is trustworthy.

I hope you are enjoying this Life Principle series. Have a great weekend.
Michael

Domain Industry Update – Week 16

Is a massive change in the wind this week?

This week showed a VERY unexpected change in the stats and one that I personally was very surprised to witness. It signals a potential massive change in the domain monetization industry so hang onto your seats as I dive into the data.

Escrow.com

I also couldn’t help noticing that Facebook is going through a whole heap of pain as major advertiser after major advertiser has stopped advertising on that platform. The question I ask myself is where will the advertisers go to attract the Gen Z and millennial eyeballs?

Google? Unlikely. Twitter….they have their own kind of pain. Whatever happens, I’m sure the data will begin to reveal the activities of major corporate advertisers.

Saturday Musings - Life Principles, truth

Life principle 1, the truth

Being a seeker of the truth is one of the most transformative attitudes that a person can have in their life. Many years ago, I determined that being truthful would be one of the foundations for my own life.

Escrow.com

The result of this journey has been a great relationship with my wife, kids and friends all over the world. I have been blessed beyond measure and I wonder what people that I will develop strong bonds with into the future.

I find that too many people are very loose with the truth and then wonder why their lives end up in a mess. In this “Life Principles” video I encourage others to join me in also becoming seekers of the truth. It’s a life principle that has stood the test of time and has brough much joy to those that follow it.

Have a great weekend.
Michael
