  1. 6

    I'd add something (not by Elon Musk), but by Jordan Peterson:

    Compare Yourself To Who You Were Yesterday, Not To Who Someone Else Is Today.

    1. 1

      Refreshing to hear JBP in tech industry context :)

  2. 1

    I wonder what he meant by "Start a business for practical reasons and leave emotions to one side.".

    1. 4

      Just a guess but it is very relevant to who you hire, and who you fire in your company. To not hire friends just because they are friends, and being able to fire the worst performers even if it hurts you emotionally. "Its just business"
