What's the worst about Elon Musk

Tesla boss Elon Musk confesses in an interview how he is really doing | "The worst is yet to come"

Production is not going as expected and the stock exchange regulators are after him.

No easy times for Tesla boss Elon Musk (47). In an interview with the US newspaper "New York Times" he confesses how he is actually doing and what his greatest worries are.

“Last year was the most difficult and painful year of my career. It was excruciating, ”says Musk. The worst is over for Tesla, "but from the standpoint of personal pain, the worst is yet to come."

The Tesla boss explains that he has worked 120 hours a week for the past few weeks - day and night, including on his 47th birthday.

Even at his brother's wedding, he only makes one flying visit: practically from his desk, he flies to Spain in a private jet, stays until shortly after the ring exchange, and then flies back straight away. A break? Unthinkable.

Since 2001, Musk does not want to have taken more than a week of "vacation" at a time. At the time, he was bedridden because of malaria.

His enormous workload also puts a strain on relationships with family and friends. “There were times when I didn't leave the factory for three or four days. It was really at the expense of my time with my children. And my friends, ”reports the Tesla boss in an interview.

In order to be able to sleep, Elon Musk sometimes takes the sleeping pill Ambien. "It's often the choice between no sleep and Ambien," he tells reporters.
