點先可以成為億萬富豪?Musk前妻:是咁的…

StealJobs.com
外國高質答問社區 Quora 最近有網民發問:「假如我好有決心,而且願意付出努力,我會唔會做到億萬富豪?」
問題竟然引來Tesla CEO 億萬富豪 Elon Musk的首任妻子 Justine Musk實名回覆。見證Elon Musk從普通人白手興家成為科網富豪,Justine的答案簡單來講係:

關於決心同勤力
1) 唔會咁簡單就發達,而呢個係個偽命題

2) 先講「決心」:講就容易,但你試過在鯊海游水逃命嗎?假如你滿身傷痕,孤身流落荒島,對外界救援絕望之際,你依然會有呢種決心嗎?定係你會受挫放棄?

3) 再講「勤力」:眾所週知「勤力」同「決心」非常重要。勤力同決心可以令你在其他人都放棄後,依然堅持下來;或者被更強的對手將你一次一次打敗,而你依然不放棄繼續挑戰。但其實呢個都只係成功的「最低要求」而已:無就固然毫無懸念失敗而且不值一提,但即使有勤力同決心都唔一定成功。

咁點先可以發達/成功
真正關鍵在於
1) 將你的專注力從「想發達」轉為「深度而且密集地了解及研究,呢個世界究竟需要同希望得到乜野」

2) 努力令自己成為兩個範疇獨當一面的專家,從而可以解決以上「世界的問題」時,無任何人或電腦可以取代你的地位 (例如工程知識加上商業本領。好似Elon Musk, Steve Jobs等等),而且可以將兩種技巧左右開弓互相引用

3) 呢個世界無人會因為你努力而俾錢你。消費者或投資人俾錢你,只係因為佢地認為你或你的產品與付出的金錢有相等價值,甚至更高價值,可謂等價交換,與有幾努力無大關係。

4)商業成功同讀書唔同,無Model Answer,無路線圖,要靠自己摸索。

5) 一路上會有唔少人俾各種意見你,其中大部份都係非常低質。而即使高質的意見,絕大部分都對你本身的情況係無重大應用價值,因為對方唔係企係你個位為你思考。而且,真正成功往往係從意想不到的角度出發,如何係其他人都想到的角度,可能其實真係平平無奇。

6)成功之路是孤單的,直到你建立到「好打得」的團隊,而呢樣野需靠你的人格魅力以及個人信用。你個人信唔信得過?要叻人為你效勞加入你的團隊,呢個係好關鍵問題。

雖然無點名講Elon Musk,但唔難明白她的觀察好可能來自親身接觸的Elon Musk本人。

Quora問題如下:


Will I become a billionaire if I am determined to be one and put in the necessary work required?

Justine Musk答案全文:

No.

One of the many qualities that separate self-made billionaires from the rest of us is their ability to ask the right questions.

This is not the right question.

(Which is not to say it's a bad question. It just won't get that deep part of your mind working to help you — mulling things over when you think you're thinking about something else — sending up flares of insight.)

You're determined. So what? You haven't been racing naked through shark-infested waters yet. Will you be just as determined when you wash up on some deserted island, disoriented and bloody and ragged and beaten and staring into the horizon with no sign of rescue?

We live in a culture that celebrates determination and hard work, but understand: these are the qualities that keep you in the game after most everybody else has left, or until somebody bigger and stronger picks you up and hurls you back out to sea. Determination and hard work are necessary, yes, but they are the minimum requirements. As in: the bare minimum.

A lot of people work extremely hard and through no fault of their own — bad luck, the wrong environment, unfortunate circumstances — struggle to survive.

How can you *leverage* your time and your work?

Shift your focus away from what you want (a billion dollars) and get deeply, intensely curious about what the world wants and needs. Ask yourself what you have the potential to offer that is so unique and compelling and helpful that no computer could replace you, no one could outsource you, no one could steal your product and make it better and then club you into oblivion (not literally). Then develop that potential. Choose one thing and become a master of it.  Choose a second thing and become a master of that.  When you become a master of two worlds (say, engineering and business), you can bring them together in a way that will a) introduce hot ideas to each other, so they can have idea sex and make idea babies that no one has seen before and b) create a competitive advantage because you can move between worlds, speak both languages, connect the tribes, mash the elements to spark fresh creative insight until you wake up with the epiphany that changes your life.

The world doesn't throw a billion dollars at a person because the person wants it or works so hard they feel they deserve it. (The world does not care what you want or deserve.)  The world gives you money in exchange for something it perceives to be of equal or greater value: something that transforms an aspect of the culture, reworks a familiar story or introduces a new one, alters the way people think about the category and make use of it in daily life. There is no roadmap, no blueprint for this; a lot of people will give you a lot of advice, and most of it will be bad, and a lot of it will be good and sound but you'll have to figure out how it doesn't apply to you because you're coming from an unexpected angle. And you'll be doing it alone, until you develop the charisma and credibility to attract the talent you need to come with you.

Have courage. (You will need it.)

And good luck.  (You'll need that too.)
