Elon Musk – Innovator

A very interesting video – an interview that Elon Musk gave to Chinese TV, In it he talks about many things; handling risk, increasing the odds of a successful new business and his plans for SpaceX and Tesla.

For me, the most interesting parts come towards the end of the interview – firstly, his concerns that standard school wasn’t giving his five children what they needed as preparation for life (so he launched a school) and his core philosophy behind all that he does – “Am I being useful?”

There’s also a very valuable and important lesson for today’s young in there – cooking the meal may be the part that you really enjoy, the part that you want to do and that gives you pleasure. However, the kitchen still has to be cleaned up and there’s no getting away from those tasks. You can’t have one without the other.
