<h5>Five things I learned while religiously following the real life Iron Man.<br/></h5>
<p><b id="docs-internal-guid-2ae18476-7b0a-fb01-174e-319ed7bc69af"></b></p><p><b>1. It’s OK to be a smartass (but only if you’re smart).</b></p><p><b><br/></b></p><p>Elon Musk doesn’t have much of a filter. Remember that time Musk got in a fight with Jeff Bezos about rockets on Twitter? Or when he called out legendary reporter Carol Loomis? If you’re going to publicly call out Carol Loomis, you best be right. </p><p><br/></p><p><b>2. Don’t be afraid to try to be good at everything.</b></p><p><b><br/></b></p><p>Musk turns the ‘jack of all trades’ notion on its head. The man has his hand in everything.</p><p><br/></p><p><b>3. Humor is a powerful tool.</b></p><p><b><br/></b></p><p>Musk once made a sex joke on the Stephen Colbert Show that even Colbert himself needed a moment to process. He also measured his new Gigafactory in units of hamsters (it spans 50 billion hamsters, in case you were wondering). When Musk went to the Pentagon for a meeting with the U.S. Secretary of Defense, he joked that the purpose of his visit was “something about a flying metal suit…”</p><p><br/>
<br/></p><p>If a man worth $12.7 billion has time to be funny, you do too. </p><p><br/></p><p><b>4. Blow people’s minds.</b></p><p><b><br/></b></p><p>You’ve probably heard the adage, “if your dreams don’t scare you, they aren’t big enough.” It’s no secret that Musk has grand plans, and has faced criticism because of it — but it’s the mind-blowing ideas that turn out to be the historic ones.</p><p><br/></p><p><b>5. Satisfaction is for losers.</b></p><p><br/></p><p>Musk says, “starting a company is like eating glass and staring into the abyss of death.”</p><p><br/></p><p>Yet after co-founding PayPal, Musk could have stopped — he had reached most Americans’ end goal: be rich.</p><p><br/></p><p>But instead of hunkering down with his money and a couple of girlfriends, the notoriously busy man jumped right from PayPal to starting up SpaceX and Tesla and most recently acquiring SolarCity. He’s never satisfied.</p><p><span id="selectionBoundary_1470943254297_8313209267762389">﻿</span></p>
