Difference Between Believing In Your Ideals & Unrealistic Dreams - Elon Musk

Elon Musk - Achieve

Tesla CEO & Founder Elon Musk explains how it is important to be rigorous in self-evaluating yourself, and your work, when trying to accomplish all the goals you want to achieve on both a long-term and short-term basis.


"A natural human tendency is wishful thinking. A challenge for entrepreneurs is to say, what’s the difference between really believing in your ideals and sticking to them versus pursuing some unrealistic dream that doesn’t actually have merit. That is a really difficult thing to tell. Can you tell the difference between those two things, you know? You need to be sort of very rigorous in your self-analysis. If other people are putting in 40-hour work weeks and you're putting in 100-hour work weeks, then even if you’re doing the same thing, you know that you will achieve in four months what it takes them a year to achieve."
