It may be your reason for your success...what are the traits that Jobs, Gates, and Musk share

The late Apple founder Steve Jobs, Microsoft founder Bill Gates, and Tesla CEO Elon Musk all share one personality trait that he believes is a major reason behind the successes these people have achieved.


Walter Isaacson, who previously wrote a Steve Jobs autobiography and is now writing another for Musk, revealed that these three people have one thing in common: they are all "unsentimental" in dealing with their employees and colleagues.


Isaacson pointed out that this trait is magnified in the personality of these people when it comes to achieving their vision for their work. 

Tesla employees agree that working with Musk is not easy, and they describe him as “very meticulous” and is not shy about expressing his displeasure when employees fall short or fail to meet deadlines, and considered that it is not easy to work with the richest man in the world, but he At the same time a cheerful and inspiring person.


In a television interview 4 years ago, Musk said, “In order to succeed and live, we must work hard,” and perhaps this represents his vision of the optimal lifestyle, as Isaacson confirmed that despite Musk’s keenness on his reputation, he tends to be rude and harsh with his employees when implementing a vision company. Steve Jobs, for his part, is "very frank," as Apple employees who worked with him confirmed that he does not hesitate to express his frank opinion.


As for Gates, he admitted that in his early days at Microsoft he was not very kind. In a 2020 interview on the "Armchair Expert" podcast, Gates said that he and his old friend Jobs are known for their fierce rivalry that has translated into extremely high expectations for their employees and themselves.


If one trait combined these three wealthy people, was it really the reason for their success?
