The work/life imbalance is clear as Tesla CEO Elon Musk reveals to work more than 90 hours over a seven day week.
In a chat on Twitter with one of his fans, Musk was asked if he worked more than 90 hours per week – that’s almost 13 hours a day, every day. In reply, the billionaire mentioned, “In recent years, hours were much higher.”
The report said, according to the Tesla CEO, the reason for such huge amount of work was just to do with ramping up production of the Model 3 in the face of increasing competition from the rival larger traditional car companies.
He thinks if he does not put in his sufficient amount of effort, his Electric Vehicle (EV) Company Tesla would die. Previously, the billionaire has mentioned that sometimes he puts in 120 hours in seven days to keep Tesla functioning smoothly.
However, he doesn’t recommend others to do so.
Don’t recommend though — bad for health & happiness. But no choice or Tesla would die. Hope to reduce to 80 hours next year
He also revealed that he would often sleep at the Tesla factory during his immense work pressure to get the production line up to match his promise of delivering 5,000 Model 3 cars a week. Well, he hopes to bring down his work hours to 80 hours next year.
