A few things to review, especially if you’re working on a startup: It’s amazing how simple these pieces of wisdom are and yet how truly profound.

Just listening to Elon talk through his perspective on the future of humanity is fascinating. I’m not a super-fan of Elon but I believe that he has the courage to pursue things against all odds and that is inspiring. We need more people like him.
