The thing you do need to do is learn. Learn accounting. Learn finance. Learn statistics. Learn as much as you can about business. Read biographies about businesspeople. You don’t have to focus on one thing, but you have to create a base of knowledge so you are ready when it’s time. - Mark Cuban
This is what life is all about,Superfly, it is about making the choices in your life, and doing the work, and learning the way. I have absolutely no patience with people who aren't learning, who are not changing who they are daily. They are asleep while others are busy creating themselves and the world they walk through.
Education is not a place, it is a way of being, and anyone not interested in learning is going to learn the hard way that Darwin was right, and they will find themselves culled from the herd. Ignorance is not a viable survival skill.
When I say Universities are on their way out, that doesn't mean education is out, because education has never been more critical to your life and to your success than it is today. Learning has never been more possible, it has never been easier, and you can have access to almost any data, any information, from anywhere, in the world, and it has never been easier to be better tomorrow than your are today.
You have the tools of giants. Your IPhone has more computing power than the computers used to get to the moon. You have access today to tools giant companies and countries couldn't get twenty years ago. You got the stuff, now use it.
Any time your life settles into a routine, you are stagnating.
Any animal doing the same thing every day, take the same path to the water hole, is in the end, a dead animal.
Look around you, the world changes constantly, and anyone not changing and adapting is simply done and not worth know. I want people in my network who seriously know their stuff.
What did you learn today? Seriously. What?
Today I learned how to cook Banana Pancakes from scratch.
I studied SEO for about an hour trying to understand how internet businesses function.
I read some Hemingway, two short stories, trying to learn how he manages to make the entire story about what isn't said. the empty spaces in the dialogue.
I started to learn how to use body weight as a workout process (fascinating).
That isn't all I did today, but it shows the point.
In my humble opinion, once you have learned how to learn, then you can try as many different things as you can, recognizing that you don’t have to find your destiny at any given age—you just have to be prepared to run with it when you do. - Mark Cuban
Hey You. Get away from the TV, get off the couch, and go create something.
“We all are learning, modifying, or destroying ideas all the time. Rapid destruction of your ideas when the time is right is one of the most valuable qualities you can acquire. You must force yourself to consider arguments on the other side.
— Charles T. Munger”
