Mark Cuban’s The Sport of Business

Mark Cuban’s blog is one I keep a close eye on. As a Purdue grad, I used to think he was just a lucky guy from IU who timed the dotcom bubble right, bought the Mavericks and now makes a spectacle of himself at games. OK, maybe I’m right on one of those points, but there’s no debating this guy is a genius.

His latest post is called The Sport of Business and features a list of reasons why he feels “success is about the edge.” Here are my favorites, but be sure to read the entire list on his blog:

The edge is getting so jazzed about what you do, you just spent 24 hours straight working on a project and you thought it was a couple hours.

The edge is knowing that you can fail and learn from it, and just get back up and in the game.

The edge is being able to call out someone on a business issue because you know you have done your homework.

The edge is recognizing when you are wrong, and working harder to make sure it doesn’t happen again.

The edge is being able to drill down and identify issues and problems and solve them before anyone knows they are there.
