Mark Cuban telling it like it is.......from his blog

"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 chances are you will never be criticized. For those of us who set goals and want to have an impact in the business world in particular, criticism is part of the job description. You have to be able to be able to take it and sometimes you can’t be afraid to dish it out. Although criticism is typically perceived as a negative, it can be one of the most positive and motivating forces any of us can experience. The key to turning criticism into a positive is understanding the nature of the criticism. In a nutshell it comes down to content. Is the criticism based on content or not. I’ve received a ton of criticism in the media over the last few weeks. People criticized where, when and how I did things. Not a single person criticized or challenged why. I get criticized a lot. So what. If someone says something of value. I will learn from it. If they criticize to fill up a column or to hear them[selves] talk, I can get a good laugh out of it. What it all comes down to is content and effort. If someone puts in the effort and challenges the content and makes me rethink my position, I come out ahead. So criticize away."
