The quote is one of my favorites because it is Musk’s core vision and life pursuit. And the cherry on top is the way he is bringing this grand vision to fruition…physics. Elon Musk has talked many times about the way he approaches problem solving. He boils a problem or situation down to core principles and reasons up. Check out this two minute clip about how Musk uses this thinking to argue how a small company can be more productive than a larger one.
Elon Musk giving a shout out in yesterday’s Telsa press release. Tesla, amazingly so, paid off their U.S. government loan NINE YEARS EARLY! This is such cool news, a dignified “I told you so” with a side of “suck it” to the Tesla naysayers.
And, yes Elon, Tesla did us real proud!!
—Astro Teller about Elon Musk
A cool Pando Daily article about Teller’s thoughts on Musk and encouraging us all to be more like him.
“It’s not just that he’s built some exciting and really meaningful, positive things,” said Teller. “That’s great. But he’s like a walking moonshot. He’s so audacious, it seems limitless.”
Quote from a great Pando Daily mashup of Elonisms. Be sure to look at the end of the article where they list the 25 sources they used for the mashup. Too bad Elon Enthusiast didn’t make it on the list.
And if you’ve never watched Pando Daily’s interview with Musk, check it out, it’s a good one.
Aw, shucks, glad you like it! Thanks for the note.
Elon Musk is never shy to admit he made a mistake. Lots of folks are calling the math fuzzy, I think it’s just more involved than most of us normally consider. Seems to me Tesla has done a lot of “coupon hunting” for it’s consumer and taken away the largest obstacle, the 10% down payment.
Mr. Musk announced in early April that he is personally guaranteeing the buyback of every Tesla Model S they lease, even if Tesla should go out of business or otherwise be unable to at the end of the three year term.
