All great people in history have one thing in common: They know how to follow through. Whether it comes to learning new skills, or applying their ideas, they always do whatever it takes to get the job done. They know how to execute.
Probably one of the greatest executors of all time is Elon Musk. He’s really a creative dreamer, but unlike most imaginative people, he knows the power of following through. He wanted there to be an efficient online payment system, so he co-founded PayPal. He wanted the world to have cleaner energy, so he founded Solar City, a company that produces solar panels. He wanted more efficient automobiles on the market, so he founded Tesla, an electric car company. Now, he currently wants to go to mars, so he founded SpaceX, a private space organization, and is scheduling a space mission to achieve his goal. It’s simply incredible.
He has so many accomplishments to his name because, unlike other dreamers, he puts his ideas into action and, by doing so, he is able to do almost everything he intends to. His success is a product if his willingness to follow through.
