Like many internet users, we know Elon Musk likes to use his image as his avatar. If you are not familiar with his name, you really need to keep up with him. Elon Musk is the CEO and chief scientist at Tesla Motors, the company behind everything from its electric car to its electric vehicle technology. After joining Tesla in 2008, he became its President and COO, overseeing its massive expansion in the U.S. as well as other locations.
Elon Musk is a pioneer among business leaders in using innovative technologies to bring new products to market, while managing risks and implementing a lean, streamlined operational process. He has built a reputation on his focus on product innovation and on his commitment to building a world befitting of its great thinkers, innovators, and inventors. Musk’s vision of the future is of transportation as a utility that eliminates congestion.
Musk is not a genius, but he is a great person, inventor, mentor, and entrepreneur who always manages to be thoughtful, compassionate, and caring. He is a great person who also happens to know so much about the future. We can all learn something from Elon Musk. He might have an obsession (with Tesla), but he may, in fact, have a deeper insight into how Tesla makes a successful vehicle. We need to learn together how to deal with the uncertainty of new technology.
This is not a post about what a brilliant person Elon Musk is, but about how to enjoy life because we tend to focus on what we can and can’t do, instead of why we are here, with the end goal of living happy and fulfilled. Here are 15 things that Tesla’s CEO had in common with the names of famous computer programmers.
The truth is that no one is perfect, especially in our relationships. People are going to disappoint you, and you are going to hurt people you love. A strong partner is a must in our society, however that does not mean that a strong partner is a one size fits all formula. Rather it is a set of beliefs, experiences, knowledge and abilities that a person has based upon a life of faith. A strong person has both great love and great tolerance and flexibility.
A good relationship can make us truly happy, but we need to find a good balance to it. We really want what we want, but we also need to understand what makes us happy. Is it financial security? Or is it emotional fulfillment? Perhaps it is our sense of independence, or our love for someone. You have to know what makes you happy and try and find the balance that will be the right mix for you.
A strong person is the kind of person who likes to be independent.
