Being that Elon’s Mom was from Saskatchewan we thought what not a better leader to look up to when looking at workplace productivity. Tesla has grown into an amazing company that has a “Cinderella-esque” theme to it. Always an underdog, always doing something different than the norm, if there’s one thing we’ve come to rely on Elon for, it’s innovative thinking. So when it comes to productivity we view opinions from Musk as invaluable advice to take into any organization, yes even (insert slow moving bureaucracy) type organizations.

The email was direct, it talks about precision, profitability and progress. The most interesting part was the last part where he says “Btw, here are a few productivity recommendations”. Basically he sums up what goes wrong at big companies and organizations. Inefficiencies that are handed down from old bureaucrats to bureaucrats in training. Using the excuse of “but it’s always been done that way!” or “we’ve never done it that way!”.
To the Musks of the world, we need you. The status quo has never helped anyone, it’s time to change up the way you organize your workplace.
Here are Elon Musk’s productivity tips in a nutshell:
“It is not rude to leave [a meeting], it is rude to make someone stay and waste their time.”
