Elon Musk – Take Risks

Business magnate Elon Musk shares his personal story about hard work and dedication, and urges us to be bold to make big things happen.


When my brother and I were starting our first company, instead of getting an apartment, we just rented a small office, and we slept on the couch. We showered at the YMCA. We were so hard-up, we had just one computer. The website was up during the day, and I was coding at night. Seven days a week, all the time. If you do the simple math, say like … Okay, if somebody else is working 50 hours and you’re working 100, you’ll get twice as much done in the course of a year as the other company.

“Rather than reasoning by analogy, you boil things down to the most fundamental truth you can imagine and you reason up from there. This is a good way to figure out if something really makes sense or if it’s just what everybody else is doing. Now is the time to take risks. I would encourage you to take risks now. Do something bold. You won’t regret it. Thank you.”
