We have prepared for you 10 thoughtful quotes by Elon Musk, which not only characterize him as a person, but also give rise to deep thought.
Persistence is essential. You cannot give up unless you are forced to do so [for example, life threatening circumstances].
Ability to foresee the future
When I say something, it happens later. Maybe not on schedule, but it usually does.
People should do what they really love. It will make them happier than anything else.
People work best when they clearly understand why and why they are doing it. It is important for people to look forward to the morning so they can come to work and enjoy it.
At SpaceX, we have a policy of not working with assholes.
About the ultimate goal
I do not create companies in order to create companies [action for action], but in order to achieve my ultimate goal [for example, a manned flight to Mars ].
The first step is to make sure something is implementable. Opportunities will come later.
Work like hell. I mean you need to work 80-100 hours a week every week. This increases the chances of success. If other people work 40 hours a week, and you work 100 hours a week, and you do the same thing, then in four months you will reach what it will take them a year to do.
Ability to take risks
When Henry Ford created affordable and reliable cars, most people were indignant: “Why are horses bad?” He took the risk, put everything on the line, and it worked.
Love and happiness
It is very important to love and respect the people with whom you work, otherwise your life and work will be quite deplorable.
