  • No.

  • It's not. It's it. There's no need even to have a college degree

  • at all or even high schools the

  • I mean if somebody graduated from a great university that maybe an

  • you know if you look at

  • Say people like Bill Gates for Larry Ellison Steve Jobs

  • These guys didn't graduate from college, but if you had a chance to hire them of course. That would be a good idea

  • so you know just really looking just for evidence of

  • exceptional ability, and if there's a track record of exceptional achievement

  • Then it's likely that that will continue into the future how I describe myself

  • Well I mean I seem to have a high innate drive

  • And that's been true even since I was a little kid you know really?

  • Had a very strong Drive did all sorts of risky things for his kid that I like why did I do those things are crazy?

  • I care a lot about the truth of things and trying to understand the truth of things I think so I think

  • that's

  • important

  • If you're going to come up with some solution then the truth is really really important, I think I

  • Try to think of I mean, it's it's difficult obviously come up with like things that are praise for oneself

  • You know or like it. There's and there's bad and good here, but?

  • I

  • think like sometimes they're just like the things that seem quite clear and obvious to me and I I

  • I don't understand why they aren't so obvious to everyone

  • So how would you educate your five boys?

  • Actually, I created a little school

  • hahaha

  • Yeah, what kind of school could you describe sure it's I mean it's small

  • It's only got 14 kids now, and it'll have 20 kids and in September

  • It's called ad astra which means to the stars. That's maybe a bit different from

  • From most of the schools is that there aren't any grades?

  • There's no there's no like look grade 1 grade 2 grade 3 type of thing

  • I'm making all the children go and that in the same grade at the same time like an assembly line

  • I know you know cuz some people love English or languages some people love math some people love music and

  • And different abilities different times it makes more sense to to cater the education to match their aptitudes and abilities

  • It's like that's one principle

  • Another is that it's important to teach?

  • Teach problem solving or teach to the problem not to the tools so this would be like

  • Let's say

  • You're trying to teach people about

  • How engines work before you know you could start by the more traditional approach would be to say we're going to teach you all about

  • screwdrivers and wrenches and and you even have a course on screwdrivers a course on wrenches and all these things and it's

  • This is a very difficult way to do it a much better way would be like here's the engine now

  • Let's take it apart. How are we going to take it apart? Oh you need a screwdriver?

  • That's what the screwdrivers for you need a wrench. That's what the wrench is for

  • And then a very important thing happens

  • Which is that the relevance of the tools becomes apparent so all five boys are in that school? Yes until when this is from?

  • When you're old, haha

  • They like it they like it yeah, and you want to keep them away from regular schools

  • No, I just didn't see that the regular schools

  • Just they weren't doing the things that I thought should be done like you know those two principals. They weren't

  • adhering to those principles, so I thought well, let's see what we can do maybe creating a school will be better and

  • Actually hired a teacher from the school

  • they were at

  • You also agreed with me that there was a better way to do it have they surprised you in a way of their innovative

  • thinking

  • Yeah, it seems to be going pretty. Well. I mean I the kids really love going to school

  • I think that's a good sign. You know I mean I hated going to school when I was a kid it was torture

  • So the fact that they like they actually think occasions are too long, mmm. They want to go back to school

  • Yeah, exactly I know

  • What is it?

  • Well I mean those are pretty different personalities in it between gates and jobs and Alison's at success

  • Well, I think you know all

  • All three of those were technologists, but with different types of skills

  • and their jobs was obviously very good with aesthetics and

  • You know

  • against the technology of course

  • and you really insert where people wanted even when they didn't know themselves and

  • He was not afraid to break boundaries, but say like gates would probably be better at

  • You know sort of raw engineering and technology than jobs, but not as good on aesthetics

  • But I mean for these guys of the obviously very driven and they're very talented and

  • Yeah, and they're able to attract great people to hold a company

  • But I needed that like the

  • the ability to attract and motivate great people is

  • critical to the success of a company because the company is just that's a group of people that are assembled to create a product or

  • service

  • That's the purpose of a company

  • if you all some of us forget this elementary truth and so if

  • You know if you're able to get great people to join the company and work together towards a common goal and

  • and you sort of have a

  • relentless sense of perfection about that goal, then you will end up with a great product and

  • Have a great product. Let's if you will buy it and then we kind of know we'll be successful. Yeah really

  • It's pretty straightforward really yeah, I mean yeah, that's the reason for it

  • I wouldn't say I'm fearless in fact. I I think I fear I feel fear quite strongly

  • but I am

  • if the if what we're doing isn't

  • you know what I'm doing is I think it's important enough then I just

  • override the fear

  • So, but it's not as that I don't feel I feel a little like more stronger than I would like

  • Well it really depends on the stakes if the stakes are high if it's really important

  • then one should then I you know will overcome the fear and just do it anyway I

  • Essentially I mean I just

  • Drive over rights fear, but I feel the fear. It's kind of annoying. I wish isn't oh, Sh. I felt it less

  • So

  • Yeah these all these introspective questions are interesting. I don't get the ask these very often

  • And then like I try to think like what is like an evident an accurate reply

  • And somebody said it's like I know it's hard to evaluate yourself on these things yeah

  • Well probably SpaceX I thought it had the lowest chance of success

  • I

  • Mean I thought both Tesla and SpaceX would fail at the beginning

  • You saw it yeah really of course, but nevertheless you put all your money in that

  • Expected to lose it well technically what I thought was well

  • I'll take half the money from PayPal, and if I lose half of it. That's okay

  • But then of course the companies encounter difficulties and then have a choice of that you like let the company die

  • Or put you know you know

  • all the money into the companies and so I

  • Really didn't want the companies to die so I put all the money in the companies

  • Yeah, and then I had to borrow money for friends should pay living expenses yes

  • What was your best idea ever my best idea ever yeah?

  • This is tricky I suppose

  • coming to

  • North America was my best idea okay, because I think these things would not have been accomplished

  • Anyway, you know almost anywhere else. It's really hard to start a company

  • but

  • You know in particularly?

  • California Silicon Valley is very conducive to startup companies and

  • Yeah, and so yeah

  • You know whenever I read books in South Africa it would seem like the cutting edge of technology was

  • In Silicon Valley and so that that's what I wanted to come and I wanted to move move to this mythical place

  • Well there's there's lots of things, but you know when life is short, and there's lots of things that

  • Could be done that one can't necessarily do

  • And these really are introspective questions

  • I think it no I mean

  • I'm overall I think I'm pretty pretty happy with what wait you know where things are it's hard not to be honestly

  • I'd be

  • Yeah

  • If things are in a good place right now

  • and I

  • Mean I'd like to at looking ahead I'd like to see

  • Humanity go beyond Earth and have

  • People on Mars that would be really great

  • and to see widespread adoption of electric vehicles and

  • renewable energy

  • these were great things and

  • Yeah, thought I thought would be really really cool

No.
