... on the question of how Elon Musk will advise his kids on a career with so much that is changing.
"What do you tell them that will be of value?", asks interviewer David Faber.
Oh and I just have to say I appreciate his thoughtful pause SO much!
May 16, 2023: Tesla and Twitter CEO Elon Musk sits down with CNBC’s David Faber for an exclusive interview from Austin, Texas, during Tesla’s annual shareholder meeting. Musk talks about advice he would give his children on going into the workforce as A.I. continues to boom.
"work on things that you find interesting, fulfilling and that contribute some good to the rest of society" -Elon Musk
It matters that our kids learn what that is for them. That is what ShineOn™ and Clarity Mapping is for and why I created it. It's to help them find their answers.
I hope you'll grab my Parent Guide and watch my Masterclass to start to understand why this is so important if we are going to be able to guide them as they grow. They will need to be able to handle how fast the world is changing.
Finding meaning and fulfillment is not something reserved for the upper class. AI is coming for all of us. If we are to live lives that bring us any level of joy at all we are going to need to develop our self-awareness and let that lead the way.
Clarity Mapping supports that journey and you can get started right away in the ShineOn™ Experience.

Here's the transcript of this specific part of the interview. Copied from, CNBC
FABER: I want to end on one AI question. You have a lot of kids. I have some kids. I have one who's actually soon to go into the workforce. I struggle with how to advise him about a career when this technology exists and will only approve. I'm just curious when you think about advising your children on a career with so much that is changing, what do you tell them is going to be of value?
MUSK: Well, that's a tough question to answer. I guess I would just say, you know, to sort of follow their heart in terms of what they find interesting to do or fulfilling to do. And try to be as useful as possible to the rest of society. If we do get to the sort of like magic genie situation where you can ask the AI for anything. And let's say it's even the benign scenario – let's say it's benign scenario, how do we actually find fulfilment? You know, how do we find meaning in life if the AI could do your job better than you can? I mean, if I think about it too hard, it can be just dispiriting and demotivating. Because, I mean, I go through I put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into building the companies. And then I'm like, wait, should I be doing this? Because if I'm sacrificing time with friends and family that I would prefer to do, but then ultimately, the AI can do all these things. Does that make sense? I don't know. To some extent, I have to have deliberate suspension of disbelief in order to remain motivated. So I guess I would say just, you know, work on things that you find interesting, fulfilling and that contribute some good to the rest of society.
