Elon Musk—And his dream for our future.

I have a lot of friends either frustrated with the work they are doing or stuck unable to progress in their chosen field. Then there are those, who struggle but are happy with growth and achievements they make. At these points I seek something inside me to lift myself off and believe, I can do it.

“I think the value of beauty and inspiration is underrated,” says Elon Musk concluding his Vancouver TED interview with Chris Anderson.

I am not a psychologist and I do not understand human behavior, as well as the learned scholars, do but I’ve understood that for me, guilt works less, than a sense of elation from the fact that someone like Elon Musk has dreamt something insanely amazing and is dead serious about it.

Development or helping someone in need starts from empathy, but then it’s all about tact, discernment, and objective reasoning that leads to constructive results. I will leave you to think about these lines and why I believe in them.

“I’m not trying to be anyone’s savior. I’m just trying to think about the future and not be sad”, says Elon Musk.

So, when I juxtapose these things for you, I do mean to imply you should something on the scale of what he does. But whatever you do, can you do it better? Are you doing it right? Even if it’s not a development or social cause, you are reducing some effort in their workplace, or communicating effectively, or growing a business, or creating a sculpture or giving someone some leeway to relax, enjoy so they can work more productively and drive humanity towards a stable, happy, exciting future.
