Mark Cuban on Success

23 Jun

“When you look at where you put in your time, where you put in your effort, that tends to be the things that you are good at. And if you put in enough time, you tend to get really good at it,” he says. “If you put in enough time, and you get really good, I will give you a little secret: Nobody quits anything they are good at because it is fun to be good. It is fun to be one of the best.”- Mark Cuban

This is akin to me of the mindset greed is good.

Now I’m not suggesting Mark is greedy, or that greed is good- by no means is that my point.  What I am saying is that when we focus on the pursuit of what feels good we will win. I enjoy seeing my writing on blogs and magazines.  I’ve written for decades now and as a craft I always pursued it because I was good at it. Do I love it?

YES.

But the last main push as a writer came with me trying to make side income.  It wasn’t for the pleasure or the glory or the Hugo award et al. I am not a Rhodes scholar- I wanted beer money (only half kidding). I knew I could make money writing, so I wrote. It was that simple.  And it felt great to focus on a strength and have it earn me money.

From where I stand there is no loss in focusing on your strengths instead of your passions.  I’m passionate about bodybuilding and lifting weights, but I don.t see a Mr. Olympia in my future. Yet. But as someone who has written for 30 years I have seen the work I put into this skill profit me.

And it feels GOOD.

YouTube SEO: A Primer on What NOT To Do

YouTube SEO: A Primer on What NOT To Do

Untitled

Well, folks, it is official- I am a fool of epic proportions.

You see I was trying to churn out that content, videos, blog posts, tweets, Instagram, Tumblr, you name it. And considering myself savvy I set about using the basic apps on my smartphone.

You hear the sound of the fool train coming right?

So I filmed my famous crappy videos and posted them on the various social media outlets. Done. Mission accomplished.

Wrong.

As you can see from the videos I wasn’t using any of the tools at my disposal. What makes it worse is the tools are provided at no cost from YouTube! So a younger guy at my job told me today I had it all backwards, and he’s a smart kid so I fire up the old interwebs and boom, He is 2000% correct.

My views are trash on almost every video. Well actually they are trash for traffic building, sales, brand awareness- you name it. I was just feeling pleased as one video a year old has 1400+ views. HA! Eat that Boston Lloyd!

I’ve spent the last few hours learning some basics, and adding keywords to my videos- video by video. Yes I am a fool don’t be me.

Rather than sell you something or rehash what I learned I want you to click this link: link-assistant

There are tools, free and at cost and a plethora of advice.

Live Brolic!
