Different Perspective. As more and more countries become part of the COVID -19 story it is important for those who are directed to self-isolate to do just that. Obviously, this is important to stop the spread of the virus but on the flip side there may be great benefits and leaps forward in technology that we may not have seen for many years had COVID -19 not occurred.
As we are asked to self-isolate and work from home, we are faced with changing our behavior to adapt to new ways of managing our daily lives. What this brings is change in thinking and processing of information. This change in behavior can lead to breakthroughs and fresh ways of looking at stale ideas.
In the case of Tesla, we may see changes in some of the fundamental tools that tesla has been developing. Let’s take for example the Full self-driving package. This has been evolving for a long time and Elon has said a number of times, that, in a couple of months it will start version one of “Feature Complete Full Self-Driving”.
Due to the self-isolation it may be possible for the brainy engineers at Tesla to develop fresh ways to explore old problems that enhance and grow the possibilities of what the full self-driving system might achieve. This may help to accelerate the development of the full self-driving package.
This is not just isolated to Tesla all companies that allow their workforce to isolate, think and trouble shoot problems from a different perspective may just give us the next big thing, or evolution.
It is exciting to think that we as a society have given people the ability to breath, to look around and see a different perspective, to collaborate in a way that previously had been talked about but seemed to hard to execute. This change is significant as we will never see the world in the light that was but in the light of what is and can be.
Elon Musk has been looking at the world in a different way for years. Finding the potential in abstract thought that has allowed him to find the beauty in old thinking and deliver products and ideas that inspire, that invigorate, that encourages passion and ultimately sparks the imagination of the next generation to not just look at the next 10 years, to not look at the next 50 years but to dream of what the next 100 years would look like and do build it now.
Just as apple said to “Think Differently” I believe we also need explore different perspectives. Let’s hope that at the end of all the isolation and the COVID-19 pandemic we can come out the other side, seeing the world from a different perspective, with hope and prosperity and a passion to see what we as a society are truly capable of.
I hope that during this time Tesla and its employees show their passion, their drive and their ability to see what the future can be and to do it now.
