When billionaire Mark Cuban talks about his career, he says, “I worked jobs I didn’t like. I worked jobs I loved, but that had no chance of becoming a career. I worked jobs that barely paid the rent. I had so many jobs my parents wondered if I would ever be stable. In every job, I would justify it in my mind whether I loved it or hated it, that I was getting paid to learn, and every experience would be of value when I figured out what I wanted to do when I grew up.”
Mark doesn’t say he had it all figured out. In fact he said, “I had as much doubt as confidence. I was just hoping the confidence would win over the doubt.”
In other words, explore new territory.
It’s not a bad thing to not have it all figured out.
Surround yourself with people you trust, who know the things you don’t.
Do whatever it takes to get the job done.
That’s when the magic happens.
