Elon Musk’s leaked email. His 6 rules for insane productivity: (Used at Tesla, Space X & now Twitter)

Elon Musk sent an email to the staff at Tesla with his 6 rules for productivity. Unsurprisingly, it leaked. Here they are:

1) Avoid large meetings Large meetings waste valuable time and energy. - They discourage debate - People are more guarded than open - There’s not enough time for everyone to contribute Don’t schedule large meetings unless you’re certain they provide value to everyone.

2) Leave a meeting if you’re not contributing If a meeting doesn’t require your: - Input - Value - Decisions Your presence is useless. It’s not rude to leave a meeting. But it’s rude to waste people’s time.

3) Forget the chain of command Communicate with colleagues directly. Not through supervisors or managers. Fast communicators make fast decisions. Fast decisions = competitive advantage.

4) Be clear, not clever Avoid nonsense words and technical jargon. It slows down communication. Choose words that are: - Concise - To the point - Easy to understand Don’t sound smart. Be efficient.

5) Ditch frequent meetings There’s no better way to waste everyone’s time. Use meetings to: - Collaborate - Attack issues head-on - Solve urgent problems But once you resolve the issue, frequent meetings are no longer necessary.

You can resolve most issues without a meeting. Instead of meetings: - Send a text - Send an email - Communicate on a discord or slack channel Don’t interrupt your team’s workflow if it’s unnecessary.

6) Use common sense If a company rule doesn’t: - Make sense - Contribute to progress - Apply to your specific situation Avoid following the rule with your eyes closed. Don’t follow rules. Follow principles.
