In his book Ego Is The Enemy, Ryan Holiday talks about how ego can destroy successful people because they spend more time on their achievements and forget to focus on the work.
Elon Musk’s tweet [above] is a great reminder of focusing on what is important: the work, not the title.
Don’t get carried away with your titles and achievements, what is important is the work to be done.
Yes, celebrate your achievements over the weekend, but get back to work on Monday.
What is important is the work you do, not the title you have. Focus on the work, the titles will come.
Doing work that matters and focusing on what matters is what truly matters.
Thanks for the reminder Elon.
