It’s Going to be a Slow Week

It’s Thanksgiving week in the US this week. On Thursday, Americans will celebrate the holiday, but the travel and related celebrations usually begin before. If you’re in the middle of a negotiation or sending emails to buyers or sellers, you’ll probably receive out of office email replies. Thanksgiving week is not usually a great week for getting business done.

In addition to Thanksgiving, the World Cup started yesterday. The USMNT is playing its first game today, and my television will be tuned in to the match. The second USMNT match is on Friday, which is also Black Friday. People around the world will be tuning in to World Cup matches this week, and work will be on the back burner.

Even if you don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, I think it’s going to be a slow week. It’s a good opportunity to take a break and focus inwards. Make a list of things to do before the holiday rush. I will probably take some time to look at my portfolio and make decisions about turning off auto-renew on some of my names.

I think December is going to be relatively busy, so I am going to use this week as a time to re-energize and prepare for the December rush.
