Narrator: Startup stories in association with oh, look dot in.
Elon: A friend of mine who’s got a good saying which is that “starting a company is like eating glass and then staring into the abyss”.
When you first start a company There’s lots of optimism and things are great and then so happiness at first is high, you encounter all sorts of issues and happiness will steadily decline.
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 had just one computer, so the website was “up” during the day, and I was coding at night seven days a week all the time.
If you succeed and in most cases, you will not succeed and Tesla almost didn’t succeed came very close to failure.
I don’t ever give up.
I mean, I’d have to be dead or completely incapacitate.d If you’re trying to do something new it’s the best way to think. Now is the time to take risk. SpaceX has announced an ambitious plan to send an unmanned capsule to Mars. Bringing the company’s CEO Elon Musk one step closer to his dream of colonizing the Red Planet. Work hard like. I mean every waking hour, that’s the thing I would say if you’re, particular if you’re starting a company. And then just work like hell I mean, you just have to put in you know 80-hour 80 to 100-hour weeks, every week.
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 in one year you will achieve in four months what it takes them a year to achieve whatever area that you get into. Given that you know even if you’re the best there’s always a chance of failure. So I think it’s important that you like whatever you’re doing. If you don’t like it, life is too short. You know, I’d say and also if you like whatever you’re doing you think about it even when you’re not working. I mean It’ll just, it’s something that your mind is drawn to and if you don’t like it you just really can’t make it work. I think if you succeed then after a long time you will finally get back to happiness.
