Elon Musk – The legend! He is a South African-born Canadian-American business tycoon, investor, engineer and yes, a successful inventor. He is the CEO of multi-billion organizations.
The organizations are – Tesla Motors, PayPal, SpaceX, SolarCity, OpenAI, and Zip2. I wonder how someone could build up so many successful companies by his mid-40s and that too in very different fields?
Well, here's an explanation to Musk's successful career.
He works 85-hour-weeks regularly.
His pointed and sharp vision for the future and implausible strength.
It means that if you want to become a master at anything, then you're supposed to choose only one field.
His expertise includes rocket science, engineering, physics and artificial intelligence.
He has the advantage of information and innovation as he focuses on many different fields and applies those principles to their core area.
He in teen times read 2 books per day and we read one book a month. This clearly tells that he was at least 60 times better than us even as a teenager.
This means that whatever he has learned till now, he applies it to the real world and very few people have the ability to do so.
Step 1: Don't go for just one approach or field in life, deconstruct many approaches, principles.
As Musk applied principles of artificial intelligence, technology, physics in fields like aerospace, automotive, in PayPal and much more.
Right learning process!
