Last year in August – quite a while ago – I wrote a blogpost about the Tweet from Elon Musk about the biz of TESLA: Tesla´s Strategic Change
Elon Musk officially considered to change the strategy of how the business was running. Maybe it was just an idea, maybe it was a test for the market, maybe it was true and a honest step into a new future.
So far we don´t know but we know that this TWEET turned out to become expensive.
What happened afterwards?
The Market value of Tesla dropped down by 10 Billion US $ between August 2018 and December 2018. On top, the American Law Enforcement Agency is/was checking a potential statutory violation. All in all, it looks like the decision from August 2018, to launch this tweet, was quite risky. It might have cost Elon Musk his freedom of the power of TESLA´s businesses.
Playing the game of driving the economy is no news.
If we keep the status quo – fine: let´s all lean back and fall asleep. I am sure that nobody will risk something nowadays which is of a great value to that person. We all know what we do, we have learned about consequences and a real player knows his or her moves on the chessboard. I suppose –
As much as every glass is half full and every sunshine causes shade it´s obvious what we possibly will gain or lose when we play this or that move with the goal to change something – in our life. Moving includes others, and it keeps the world going round.
Still, we don´t know how much purposefulness was hidden behind the tweet from August but if there was some unexpected loss involved, I am sure there is the strong willingess to get it all back!
……what do you do when you´re on top of the world?
BE A DECISION MAKER. BECOME OUTSTANDING.
