5 Simple Ways Of Getting Things Done Like Elon Musk Does

Posted on

Elon Musk, a name that never misses making headlines for the remarkable and near to impossible things he accomplishes with absolute simplicity. Well, there are many things that contribute to how he thinks and takes action. It could be his habit of reading like a maniac or simply learning from his failures.

Here are few things that reflect his work style.

1. Simplify Your Communication

SpaceX, a company that has to deal with so many complex technologies, that if someday anyone of us ends up in such a discussion, we will have no clue about what’s going on. Thankfully, this is not the case under Elon Musk’s leadership.

Musk insists that his teams communicate with each other using everyday language. He sent SpaceX a listing where acronyms unapproved by him should be eliminated. He doesn’t want a huge glossary of terms to manage or engineers sitting blank in meetings, unsure of what the others are talking about.

Musk told SpaceX, “The key test for an acronym is to ask whether it helps or hurts communication.”

Isn’t that a wonderful lesson on how to simplify even a complicated business?
