How is it even possible that Elon Musk could build four multibillion companies by his mid-40s - in four separate fields ?
To explain Musk's success, others have pointed to his heroic work ethic , his ability to set reality-distorting visions for the future , and his incredible resilience .
Based on my own unscientific review of Musk's life and the academic literature related to learning and expertise, I'm convinced that we should learn across multiple fields in order to increase our odds of breakthrough success.
