Elon Musk Motivation: Don’t Confuse Schooling With Education

Elon Musk Motivation: “Don’t confuse schooling with education. I didn’t go to Harvard but the people that work for me did.” – did you know what Elon Musk means with this quote? And how to lead great people? How do you want to be lead?

Don’t confuse schooling with education

First part “Don’t confuse schooling with education” – many think he means that just going to school and getting good grades is not enough to master life. Teaching students to become good 8 to 5 obedient employees – some say that is the main reason of the current schooling systems – will not make them successful entrepreneurs.
I agree and my opinion: School should promote individual, critical thinking and true ownership, passion and leadership. A good education shows also in good behavior and treating people nice and appreciative. Learn from successful people how and why the made it.

Second part “I didn’t go to Harvard but the people that work for me did.” Some people interpret this as an arrogant statement. Maybe it’s just a fact. How I read it: It is very important to find the best people for true leaders. You don’t have to know everything yourself but you have to know your circle of competence. And find the knowledge your missing. And use all skills to their best.
