I used to think Mark Cuban was a tool.
A super lucky, at the right place, at the right time, dot-com luck-out, big-mouthed billionaire tool.
But ever since he started blogging I’ve come to really appreciate his POV.
He shakes thing up. He pisses people off. He makes CHANGE. Serious change. He’s not an administrator type managing grass growth speed incremental-ism. He makes massive things happen.
Of course that kind of behavior is not without a price. That price is near constant and deafening criticism. Mostly from the peanut gallery maintaining the status-quo.
I don’t follow basketball – I don’t care how Mark’s team is doing. But I do care about the issues Mark speaks about. And in his latest post he addressed criticism
“The easiest thing in the world to avoid is criticism. All you have to do is nothing. Do nothing of your own free will. Do only what is asked of you and nothing more, and and chances are you will never be criticized”
How many PDs, GMs, CDs, APDs, MDs, APs, etc… go out of their way everyday to avoid being criticized. It’s the path of least resistance.
Where is radio’s Mark Cuban?
