Speed Blog on a Wednesday???

Sorry got a meeting this morning but didn't want to not post.

So...


The Quotes Challenge is going great, go there to be inspired or jump into the mix and try to win a prize. The story of how unrewarding the prize is will probably be more rewarding than the prize.

Don't forget to vote today in the poll (it's towards the top right of every page), today is last day and we will launch the all out discussion tomorrow. Really the discussion has already launched pretty good here. Please if you voted other, go here and let us know why you voted other, or really other is just a cop-out, isn't it?

And lastly for right now, Kate... We need an update? I am not calling you out, I know for a fact that you are working on it, but you and I chose to air this out in front of all 5 people that read this blog, so we need to keep them informed, where we at?????

Ok I know I said lastly on the last one, but this really is gonna be lastly....

Mark Cuban , Owner of Dallas Mavericks and Gazillionaire... Is One of 4 people who's blogs I completely follow. Seth Godin is another, Leo Babauta is another and Tim Ferris. I really bite off on Godin and Cuban, Babauta is really fun to follow and kinda gives me some neat ideas every once in a while and Ferris is more of a how the hell is that guy making any $$$ type of a deal, he is making giant boatloads of money by the way.

Anyhow I haven't brought Cuban into the mix here at www.codytalks.com yet so here goes.

Read this ... I really agree with this blog post and it has truly changed my life.

I never really was a person driven by money. Don't get me wrong, I like money and I want to have more of it, but the thought of making it never really got me out of bed in the morning excited about a day at work. I am however incredible competitive in things that I enjoy. This blog post by Mark Cuban kinda molded the 2 together for me. It made me want to get out of bed and drive hard and find the edge to grow our little business, not for the sake of exploding our bank account or getting a better car, just for the sake of winning! Winning against the obstacles the world presents us and yes winning against the competition. Not in a sore loser corporate espionage kinda way, just winning, fair and square.It might all be so simple that everyone else in the world has already figured it out, but this post by Cuban hit me smack in the face and changed my way of thinking.

Anyhow, read the post, let me know what you think, it changed my mindset, actually changed my life in a day to day way.
