Elon Musk made it clear that the public would not get to see a book written by him because of the workload he faces to make a better life on Earth and pursue intergalactic ventures with SpaceX and Tesla. The CEO is a significant figure in two of the top companies in the world that makes a massive change in life as Tesla aims for sustainable energy and SpaceX focuses on beyond planet matters.

WASHINGTON – APRIL 5: Elon Musk, CEO of Space Exploration Technologies Corp, speaks during a news conference at the National Press Club April 5, 2011 in Washington, DC. Elon Musk, CEO of Space Exploration Technologies Corp (SpaceX) and Tesla Motors, held the news conference to announce SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy rocket which could complete missions to the International Space Station and Moon and should be ready for use by the end of 2012.
The CEO and the world’s richest person’s dedication to his work is outpouring and evident with his recent tweet that narrates how he contributes to reshaping the world with his companies’ contribution to everyday life. Elon Musk’s products do not aim for money-making or getting rich, but to make life better for everyone living on the planet.
The exceptional achievements of Elon Musk have brought him fame and fortune, which are several goals of people, but is not the CEO’s focus.
Elon Musk: Too Busy to Write a Book Because of Work that Betters Earth
Elon Musk’s work consists of technology that aims to better Earth and beyond, as their focus creates innovations and machines that help sustainability and improvement of the life in the planet and soon to nearby neighbors. According to Elon Musk’s recent reply tweet (@elonmusk), the various factors that center on improvement and innovation are more important for a book about his work.
I am primarily trying to advance two causes: sustainable energy & extending life/consciousness beyond Earth. There is also the existential threat of AI, which we should aspire to mitigate. This doesn’t leave time to write books.
— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) January 10, 2021
Writing a book is time-consuming and could alleviate focus off one work to the production of the said literature, and Elon Musk would not let this stop him from continuing what he is doing with his present companies. The CEO focused on two things that represent his top two companies that he leads: Sustainable Energy with Tesla, and “Extending Life/ Consciousness beyond Earth with SpaceX.”
The plain reply of the CEO shows his dedication to his work and bettering human life, as he aspires to improve the present technology with their innovations and ideas that brings breakthrough. The two causes are his major focus, but that does not limit the CEO’s work to just Tesla and SpaceX, as he still opts for Starlink’s Internet, Neuralink’s Brain Support, The Boring Co.’s traffic solutions, etc.

WASHINGTON, DC – MARCH 09: Elon Musk, founder and chief engineer of SpaceX speaks at the 2020 Satellite Conference and Exhibition March 9, 2020 in Washington, DC. Musk answered a range of questions relating to SpaceX projects during his appearance at the conference.
Additionally, the CEO mentioned that artificial intelligence is a current “existential threat” to human existence and society, and it is also one of his focus and aspirations to mitigate it. Musk is known to use artificial intelligence with his products such as the Tesla Full-Self Driving (FSD) and other programs that control his technology.
However, despite his heavy reliance, Elon Musk is still careful with the usage and dependability of AI because the facts remain that abuse or overdependence may lead to harmful consequences. According to MIT’s Technology Review, William Isaac’s research recognized the threats of AI in the present world and has shared ways to help the massive implications it can bring.
