Elon Musk famously shared his thinking around innovation and how he deploys first principles with great success.
He focuses on an indivisible problem, a so-called first principle.
This rigorous process is grounded in Aristotelian thought and given further credibility from the world of physics.
In essence, it means isolating the problem first, then designing a solution second.
Its brilliance is in its simplicity, yet humans, and in particular humans from the inkjet world don't always follow this logic.
