The highlight of the day was this insightful session on Productivity at the work place with inputs by Arianna Huffington, Co-founder of The Huffington Post and CEO of Thrive Global and Entrepreneur Mark Cuban.

The discussion opened with Mark Cuban sharing his views on the First US Presidential debate, that happened earlier this week on Monday September 26, with Arianna Huffington.

Arianna Huffington, who recently stepped away from The Huffington Post to launch her wellness startup, Thrive Global, sought wisdom from billionaire entrepreneur and Shark Tank investor Mark Cuban and the two chatted away on a wide ranging topics on-stage.

Mark discussed what he’s learned from his mistakes and his successes as an entrepreneur and moved on to sharing his personal insights on boosting productivity. He spoke on how  important it is for every businessman to get the right amount of sleep and exercise to function effectively and shared his secret to success – his daily schedule.

Here are a few business tips shared by Mark Cuban on-stage at Advertising Week New York;

1. Embrace your flaws, you can’t be perfect all the time, because nobody is.

“Perfection is the enemy of possibility and success. You need to find people who complement your skill set and not aim for perfection all the times.” Mark Cuban on building a business

2. Value your time.

Cuban confessed that he is not a fan of big conference room meetings and would rather prefer to get things done over a mail thread.

3. Don’t let failure stop you.

He spoke about his experiences early on in his career when he got fired from one of his first jobs. But that didn’t stop him, and it motivated him to start his first company.

Other speakers on the panel included;

Ellyn Shook, Chief Leadership & Human Resources Officer, Accenture 

Joanna Coles, Chief Content Officer, Hearst
