Elon Musk and Tesla Quotes

“The path to the CEO’s office should not be through the CFO’s office, and it should not be through the marketing department. It needs to be through engineering and design.” ~ Elon Musk, CEO Tesla

“I think it’s very important to have a feedback loop, where you’re constantly thinking about what you’ve done and how you could be doing it better. I think that’s the single best piece of advice: constantly think about how you could be doing things better and questioning yourself.” ~ Elon Musk

“Failure is an option here. If things are not failing, you are not innovating enough.” ~ Elon Musk

“I would just question things… It would infuriate my parents… That I wouldn’t just believe them when they said something cause I’d ask them why. And then I’d consider whether that response made sense given everything else I knew.” ~ Elon Musk, co-founder of Paypal

“A company is a group organized to create a product or service, and it is only as good as its people and how excited they are about creating. I do want to recognize a ton of super-talented people. I just happen to be the face of the companies.” ~ Elon Musk
