“Life has to be more than about solving problems.”

This quote from Elon Musk, the CEO of Space-X, Tesla (the electric car company) and Solar City (solar panel development), really sums up the drive that human beings have to explore and literally shoot for the moon. This is a video of Musk describing the inspiration he took from the Apollo missions!

Without these ‘moon shot’ dreams, inspiration from legends and a chosen focus for our lives, what would be the point of getting up in the morning? It is only through extending ourselves to reach goals that seem beyond us that we can achieve really amazing things!

Why do you get up in the morning?

What would make you jump out of bed excited for the day?
