Good And Bad Advice for Aspiring Entrepreneurs

tumblr_mxrva40Plz1st5lhmo1_500

Update: This post first appeared three years ago…
Don’t Follow Your Passion, Follow Your Effort  is the title of a post by
billionaire Mark Cuban who believes “follow your passion” is bad advice
for budding entrepreneurs.

based on firsthand experience and researching business and
medical data on the ill effects of mismatched individuals and work,
I disagree completely with nearly every statement in Cuban’s article.

 His example, it could be argued illustrates that the word passion
is being misused by those who want to believe they’ve found a
calling and that they will prevail if they just think righteous thoughts.
Cuban is not using examples of people
who found and followed their path.

In a class on critical thinking, Cuban would have a hard time proving
his conclusion. His argument is an example of a theory based on
debatable points.

On the other hand, Cuban’s e-book preview contains a lot of
common sense content. It’s almost as if two different people
wrote different sections of the blog post.

Lesson: 
Even billionaires err. There are countless points of view of
what it takes to succeed as an entrepreneur.  Identify the definition
and philosophy that inspires and empowers.
