The greatest lie

We’ll start out by saying:  here’s a 1 minute 13 second clip by Mark Cuban that every high school student watch:

Don’t follow your passion, follow what you’re good at, and where you put your effort; as Cuban says “Nobody quits anything they’re good at because it’s fun to be good, it’s fun to be one of the best, but in order to be one of the best, you have to put in the effort.”

2018, we have Alexa ordering us toilet paper, and dog robots jumping around,  and Amazon supermarkets without cashiers but what we tell our children is probably the same as what some poor farmer told his son 4000 years ago, to be good at this (farming, trading, sales, whatever your chosen profession) you have to put in the work.

Such a simple concept, and yet for so many, so hard.
