“It’s not about money or connections. It’s the willingness to outwork and outlearn everyone when it comes to your business. And if it fails, you learn from what happened and do a better job next time.” – Mark Cuban
Don’t every stop working hard for your business and learning everything there is to know. This can set you apart from your competition and help you achieve success.
Scroll down for the week 11 list.
For those new to the ENTR Innovation Challenge here is a recap.
Here’s the challenge:
-30 minutes per day
-Watch 1 TED Talk and read 1 Blink per day Monday-Friday. Take the weekends off.
-A Blink is a short 15-minute summary of key concepts of a book. (www.blinkist.com)
It may sound like a big commitment but it’s easier than you think. Blinkist offers audio versions for most books; I get through my daily innovation while walking the dog.
Just to make sure there are no excuses for not giving this challenge a try, I have put together a list for you. Each day has a Ted Talk and a Blink with a similar theme. Topics range from entrepreneurship, innovation, creativity, productivity, and general life hacks. Week 11 is below, check back to the blog each week for a new list. www.Ventureformations.com/blog
