Elon Musk Just Revealed a Brutal Truth About Success That Most People Never Understand

Inc. 25 July, 2021 - 05:00am

I think it's also fair to say that Tesla, as well as SpaceX--the other high-profile company led by Musk--are doing things that almost no one has been able to do. SpaceX, for example, is sending missions to the International Space Station. They're about to send people to the ISS, and eventually hope to send a colony of humans to Mars. 

As for Tesla, the carmaker has done more to bring electric vehicles (EVs) to the mainstream than any other company. The Model S is still the flagship EV, despite the fact that its sales have slowed over the past few years. The Model 3 was the first mainstream, relatively affordable EV. The Model Y is the most popular EV, outselling all other non-Tesla models. It's also one of the top-selling cars, period. 

Oh, and the Model 3 was just named the most American-made car

In many ways, Tesla is a classic American business success story. At the same time, that journey hasn't been without challenges. In fact, for all of its success, Tesla has been involved in plenty of setbacks. Production of the Model 3 was notoriously problematic to the point that Musk has said that it almost bankrupted the company. 

You could chalk that up to the fact that it's doing things in ways that no other company has ever done. You could also chalk it up to the fact that its CEO is one of the most eccentric people leading a high-profile tech company. I actually think there's something else worth noting.

At The B Word Conference, a cryptocurrency conference that also included Twitter and Square CEO, Jack Dorsey, Musk got personal for a minute. "I would say I've had some pretty tough life experiences and Tesla's probably responsible for two-thirds of all personal and professional pain combined to give you a sense of perspective there," Musk said.

Look, no one should feel sorry for Musk, and he's certainly fair game for criticism. He's done plenty of things to bring himself "personal and professional pain." That isn't a judgment, but it's also not a free pass. Still, it doesn't change the fact that he highlights an important truth about success--it's often very painful. 

You probably already knew that at some level. Maybe you've tried something that succeeded with a great deal of struggle. Or, maybe it didn't. Maybe it failed. Maybe you've experienced "personal and professional pain." 

The reason I bring it up is because there is a temptation to look at others' success and miss that it too is usually the product of challenges, perseverance, and often, luck. That's important to recognize because otherwise we end up with the wrong idea of how to become successful.

Most success stories don't happen overnight. They only look that way because you only see the after, and not everything that led up to the moment something that started as an idea made it into the world.

But, as Musk says, perspective is helpful. Stepping back and counting the cost of success is a useful exercise because it gives us perspective on both our own success, as well as that of others.

Revised Tesla Model S Will Only Come With A Yoke, Says Musk

InsideEVs 25 July, 2021 - 05:00am

He unsurprisingly loves the Plaid, praising all the modifications Tesla has made to it - there is clear progress in all areas (check out our coverage of his video). All but one: the yoke. He describes it as ‘ half a steering wheel ‘ and just ‘ bad ‘ but he doesn’t really have a problem with the unusual squared off shape with the top part missing.

Marques’ main gripe is with all the controls that are now touch sensitive and, in his view, hard to adjust to. Sure, it looks really cool and futuristic, you have a better view of the driver’s display and you are forced to keep your hands in the correct place while driving, but aside from this, he begins listing a whole series of disadvantages brought about by this setup.

His is one of many negative impressions of the yoke, yet even with pressure put on it by many top tier automotive and tech influencers, Tesla (and its CEO) seem committed to the yoke.  This in spite of the fact that Elon Musk replied to and acknowledged many reviewers’ less than favorable impressions of it - the company is aware, yet it’s unwilling to budge, it seems.

Furthermore, you may remember we posted an article about a photo that we were not supposed to see hidden on Tesla’s official website. The image has since been removed, but it clearly showed the updated Model S interior with a conventional circular wheel, suggesting that the manufacturer had, at some point, considered at least offering it as an option or offering it on non-Plaid versions.
