Elon Musk Doesn’t Have Time To Sleep
Elon Musk snaps back at Arianna Huffington’s advice to get more sleep with a Tweet posted at 2:30 a.m.
Elon Musk just can’t seem to catch a break. The poor guy literally works night and day, trying to build a more affordable electric vehicle, bring solar power to the world and gets a lot of backlash for his obsessive Twitter habit. During a recent interview with The New York Times, Musk told the newspaper that his 120-hour-long work week is starting to take its toll on his physical and mental wellbeing.
In response to the news about how his own batteries are starting to lose charge, Arianna Huffington, the woman who built HuffPost and has now started her latest venture Thrive Global posted an open letter about how although Tesla is revolutionizing the way we can efficiently use eletric energy, Musk is instead "demonstrating a wildly outdated, anti-scientific and horribly inefficient way of using human energy."
Response to Huffington’s Friday post came in at 2:30 a.m. Sunday morning, right after Musk finished working at the Tesla factory. The Tesla co-founder and CEO stated "Ford & Tesla are the only 2 American car companies to avoid bankruptcy. I just got home from the factory. You think this is an option. It is not."

While he works harder than perhaps any other person in tech, Musk’s behavior is starting to worry Tesla’s board. Although the company is actively looking for someone to help alleviate Musk’s workload, it has yet to find the right candidate.
