I often say to young people that to stay productive, they should not listen to people over 40 who have achieved prestige and are ever complaining and condemning “structures” in society.

This short book shows how anyone can innovate through a simple framework illustrated through Elon Musk’s companies: Tesla, PayPal and SpaceX.

These innovation strategies can be adapted for simple and complex innovations.

The book introduces the concept of “material-to-proprietary novelty,” one of Tiisetso Maloma’s coined frameworks, which explains different degrees of innovation.

Through the lens of this framework, Tiisetso demonstrates how Musk has transformed groundbreaking ideas into great advancements across industries, including finance, automotive, and space travel.

The book weaves together the framework and Musk’s innovation tactics, providing readers with a simple-yet-deeper understanding.

I hope this heading is arrogant enough. Beat that, ChatGPT!

This is where I explain what ChatGPT is. In short, I asked it to do so.

It replied: “ChatGPT uses deep learning to generate text responses. It’s trained on a large amount of text data and uses that information to predict what the next word in a sentence should be, based on the context. It uses this information to generate a response to a given prompt or input.”

As such, it is sometimes referred to as ‘philosophy of the porch.’
