The clock on my bedroom stand is one hour, twenty minutes fast. That might not seem like anything crazy except its been like that for 11 years. Yes years. I’ve never fixed it and it has a memory backup so even when the power goes out it goes right back to where it is. It absolutely drives my wife crazy. She’ll wake up in the middle of the night and peer over to my side of the bed and think its almost time to get up when in reality she has an hour twenty left to sleep. Its become such a constant that my mind automatically creates the real time when I see it.
I use the example of my clock when I give speeches. Things that are constants are easy to manage. Things that change and are variable are not. If you walk home every day and at 5:16 someone throws a rock at you then at 5:15 you should be ready for the rock. If they throw it at you every two weeks at a random time, you ALWAYS will be thinking of that rock and you have to mentally manage the stoning all the time. Way more difficult. So don’t I just change it?
I don’t change it because it makes me laugh every night. When I set my alarm each night my wife shakes her head and I giggle. 3000 plus nights of a smile. I’d also be screwed up if the time was right now. I know I’d adjust quickly but that would be no fun. The other bonus is I don’t feel like I’m getting up so early. I get up every day at 4:15 am but my clock says 5:35 so I don’t feel like the weird old guy that gets up at the crack of dawn. I’m just the weird old guy that has his clock set an hour and twenty minutes fast, still has an actual alarm clock, AND gets up at the crack of dawn.

Here are the new discussions that caught my eye in the domain community today:
Buying SquadHelp Premium Names – Total Budget: $1,000.00 – If you have a bunch of SquadHelp listed domain names you want to liquidate in bulk that meet this buyers specified criteria, this might be an opportunity to do so.
Trademark issues when marketing names to Companies – What kind of experiences have you had when it comes to pitching domain names to companies with a similar trademark? Jump in on the discussion to see how other domain investor approach it.
MM.at sold for $6,704 – That’s not a bad domain name sales report for a two-letter .at ccTLD for a mid-four-figures. Do you think it should have sold for more or less than what it sold for?
Free .co.uk promo – If you have been debating on registering a new .co.uk ccTLD but on the fence when it comes to the price point, this opportunity for a free .co.uk registration might be what you’re looking for.
What do YOU do to keep motivated as a domain investor? – Every domain investor does it a little different and no one way will work for everyone. Take a look at what some domain investors do to stay motivated and compare notes.
Broker Commissions and the extra mile – Do you think that domain brokers are working hard enough and pricing their services good enough for a better success rate in investment returns? Take a look at what some domain investors are saying.
Today’s Marketplace/Auction Picks:
A look at the final auction prices, closeouts and more from the domain auction list posted on October 18, 2019.
If there is an asterisk (*) next to a price, it means that the name was at auction from a private seller (rather than an expiring name) and may have had a reserve. I’m only showing where the price was when the domain auction ended, but the name may not have sold if a reserve was in place.

Hello, happy Saturday and welcome to my weekly Domain Investing news roundup.

Sold a few more names than normal this week on Afternic. Afternic seemed to be more consistent in the past and now it goes in waves. It probably has more to do with random timing than any actual reason, but it never hurts to look into things and make sure it’s all working like it should.
Actually I sold another 2 domains this week on Afternic that I don’t even own anymore. I need to go through and update my account, remove old inventory, but it makes me wonder why the domainer that picked them up after they dropped hasn’t listed them. If they had, the names should have gone into their account. Remember, it’s a lot harder to sell a name if no one sees it, and be honest with yourself, If you picked it up for $8 then it needs to be marketed through the registration path. The odds of someone just dreaming up that name, looking up your whois, and reaching out to you are slim.
Most people don’t even know how to look up the whois info.
