Mark Cuban is the owner of the Dallas Mavericks, among other properties. Cuban is also the Chairman, CEO, and President of HDNET TV network. Cuban gave Sam’s Dream Blog his take on pursuing your dreams.
Sam’s Dream Blog: If cost is not a primary factor in making a decision, how do you prioritize which dreams to pursue?
Mark Cuban: You have to know what you love to do and whether or not you can make it a career. You also have to determine whether or not you are willing to commit to working 20 hours a day, 7 days a week to reach that goal.
SDB: How do you evaluate whether to follow the crowd’s ideas and improve on them, or to go in a different direction?
Mark Cuban: You have to determine whether or not you are prepared to excel in either. If you don’t think you can be the very best at a business, you shouldn’t be in that business.
