I’m really inspired by Elon Musk. Marten recommended me this book, which is an absolutely great read. A couple of days ago, Elon presented the first finished part of the Tesla Gigafactory in a short presentation (16 mins). Watch the first 45 seconds and the rest if you’re interested in technology. In the first segment Elon talks about Tesla’s mission, which is to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy. He doesn’t take his responsibility lightly (the presentations are still a bit awkward though), which I find really inspiring. He’s building the biggest factory for producing batteries in the world, to make a real impact. “It has to be big, because the world is big.”
You and I too have the power to shift our focus from areas where we have low or negative impact to areas where we can make big impact. There are small opportunities which make the world a bit better, and bigger ones, that are going to cost you something. Don’t rule out the possibility that you’re capable of doing something really big.
