Excite’s Joe Kraus says that four years ago, he met Peter Ueberroth at a venture capital event. He wanted to know the secret of this man who had made his name as a millionaire, former Olympic organizer and former Major League Baseball commissioner.
I was fascinated by this guy and I had to know how he did it. So, I
asked the cliched "how have you accomplished so many amazing things in
your life" question.
He paused for a moment and I’ll never forget what he said.
"I pot plants."
Or, you could try my particular form of tilting at windmills and try your hand at writing for a living.
