Elon Musk, the famous industrialist, entrepreneur, and Founder of SpaceX, Tesla, PayPal, and Solar City, has a story all Entrepreneurs must learn from: Dream Big, But Execute Even Better.
I am intentionally posting this #Inspiration on the Space Carrier Project because it is a perfect example of Dreaming Big, but demanding the ability to Execute Even Better.
Entrepreneurs must start with a big vision, but possess the patience, motivation, and discipline, to piece together the microscopic steps to achieving their macroscopic goals.
When Elon Musk sold PayPal, he had a dream to immediately start working on one of his life goals: to put humanity on Mars. What was his first step? Was it to design his space ship? Was it to design a space carrier to get to Mars? No. What Elon did was remarkable. He flew out to Los Angeles, to the home of US Space Aviation – and found Tom Meuller – a rocket propulsion expert who built toy rockets for fun. Tom and Elon were able to test out propulsion systems in the early days on these tiny rockets, before they moved to bigger, and bigger systems.
Elon was able to incrementally build towards his vision (over 10 years), and it all started with a toy rocket (that had a propulsion system)…I guess it’s better to call it a “mini”-rocket.
Execution, and realistic plan of action, step by step, drawn out, is what separates the good entrepreneurs from the great ones.
So on this Space Carrier Project…and others alike…that dream big…but lack great execution plans…the Collaborizm Team and Community is here to help you put together that plan. But it starts with the Project Leader.
Project Leaders! Draw up your plans of action. And then we can help you accomplish your dreams.
