It was only a matter of time before a Mark Cuban blog post came up to provide us a few ingredients to add to our entrepreneur secret sauce. Since Cuban blogs about a lot of random, non-entrepreneurial stuff, it doesn’t surprise me that a gem didn’t come across my radar until 30 days into the start of curating this recipe.
This insight from Mark is just what you would expect from him… provocative. I had to dig more than 1 year back in his blog to find it.
If you really want to know where you destiny lies, look at where you apply your time.
The above quote comes from Mark’s post titled Don’t Follow Your Passion, Follow Your Effort. He suggest that the prevailing belief that following your passion leads to success is rubbish. Instead, you should follow how you spend your time. He says
”Follow Your Passion” is easily the worst advice you could ever give or get.
His rationalize is quite simple. The more time you spend on something, the better you get at it. Read all about it on his blog.
