Halfway through Mark Cubans new book; “How to Win At the Sport of Business”. So far, it is an easy read with some good tips. Mainly it validates the point that there are really no over night success stories. Most people are over night successes 10-20 years in the making. Here are a couple of the great excerpts I have read thus far.

“There’s a difference between interest and commitment. When you’re interested in doing something, you do it only when the circumstances permit. When you are committed to doing something, you accept no excuses.”

“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. Then everyone can tell you how lucky you are.”

“Everyone has got the will to win; it’s only those with the will to prepare that do win.” ~Bobby Knight in a 60 Minutes interview.

“Win the battles you are in first, then worry about expansion internationally or into new business.”

“The worst evaluator of talent is a player trying to evaluate himself.” We tend to be less than honest with ourselves about our strengths and weaknesses.
