Mark Cuban (from Shark Tank and owner of the Dallas Mavericks) has an awesome blog called Blog Maverick. He has posted a ton of stuff I have taken for my own and implemented in my every day workflow and thought process.
His book, "How to Win at The Sport of Business" is a compilation of the best of his blog posts, and it’s worth a few hours of you life to read. It’s a quick read, but there is so much good advice you will probably read it twice.
A few of my favorite quotes from the book:
“In every job, I would justify it in my mind, whether I loved it or hated it, that I was getting paid to learn and every experience would be of value when I figured out what I wanted to do when I grew up.”
- GREAT advice. Find something to learn at every job. Better yourself to better your life.
“Most people won’t put in the time to get a knowledge advantage. Sure, there were folks that worked hard at picking up every bit of information that they could, but we were few and far between. To this day, I feel like if I put in enough time consuming all the information available, particularly with the Internet making it so readily accessible, I can get an advantage in any technology business.”
- I live by this.
“It doesn’t matter how many times you fail. It doesn’t matter how many times you almost get it right. No one is going to know or care about your failures, and neither should you. All you have to do is learn from them and from those around you because …
All that matters in business is that you get it right once.”
The book is full of awesome information. Pick it up on Amazon (or the kindle edition for 3 bucks), or in the iTunes store.
