How did successful people, such as Elon Musk, spend their time when they were young, between the ages of 10 and 22?

How did successful people, such as Elon Musk, spend their time when they were young, between the ages of 10 and 22?

I’ll tell you how they DIDN’T spend it:

  • Watching television
  • Playing heavily with other children (from the list above)
  • Reading comics
  • Idly
  • Doing things they hate
  • Focussing upon chores

Now how they did:

  • Many seem to have coded
  • All were CREATING things
  • All were precocious
  • Not one of them came from a family born into poverty (this seems to be a factor)
  • Spent much of it alone
  • Much of it reading
  • Massive producers and consuming (e.g books) as a way to produce

Starting your children/nephews/nieces in a manner such as this seems to be useful
