"Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower." -- Steve Jobs
True leaders don't merely follow existing trends; they create new paths and set standards for others to follow. It is about out-of-the-box thinking, challenging the status quo, and embracing new ideas. In order to be a leader, you must take risks in order to achieve greatness.
Deciding where not to focus is key. In the case of Tesla, having an even tolerance for panel gaps didn't matter. Sure, it isn't pretty, but it doesn't affect overall functionality, and when you provide a product in a different category, certain things don't matter.
Inevitably, things start to slow down and people become jaded. In order to avoid this:
Slow down hiring
Don't act like a big company
If you want to get into deep, focused thinking, you can trick your brain to get started by not finishing tasks. By doing this, your brain continues to think about it and you can quickly jump into where you left off.
Rather than starting over, you're picking up in the middle of it.
