Found a great article that had a few gems from Mark Cuban the other day and wanted to share what I felt was his best quote…
“Work like there is someone working 24 hours a day to take it away from you.”
What I love about this quote is that it demands us to be proactive, throw away any complacency, and act with a sense of urgency. I think a lot of times we get comfortable in our roles or companies, and we get stuck in the cycle of pressing the “easy button” too often. In reality, if we all elevated our “game”, and worked like someone was gunning for us at all times, not only would all of our companies soar much higher – we’d all get more enjoyment and accomplishment out of work. I understand there are many external factors to consider (i.e. if you have children, physical limitations, or other constraints), but do think we all probably have a bit to learn from someone as dedicated and driven as Mark Cuban. Well said, sir!
