During working hours, the norm is that, you put in all your attention without any disturbances.
Be that as it may, for Elon Musk, he thinks that shouldn’t be the case. The billionaire is known for unconstrained mass correspondence, including messages he runs off to all Tesla workers.
In one email sent toward the beginning of October 2021, he said it was OK to pay listen to music at work.
“I very much support music in the factory, as well as any little touches that make work more enjoyable.”
An email which was recently sent by him, shows that the SpaceX founder and Tesla CEO, is saying Tesla workers can listen to music at work with one earbud out to tune in for security related issues.
And that is OK with him. The second, crueler email reminded workers there are just three options when Musk sends directions: clarify why he’s off-base, demand further explanation, or execute.
Other e-mail messages sent by Musk as of late, were seen as encouraging words directed to his workers chipping away at the organization’s new manufacturing plant close to Berlin, and concurring with a bullish investigator call in September recommending that Tesla stock can go to $3,000 per share — if the organization executes well.
The first one was about music at work.

Subj. Music in the Factory
Just wanted to say that I very much support music in the factory, as well as any little touches that make work more enjoyable.
An associate just sent me a note asking if we could have one ear bud for music so the other ear can listen for safety-related issues. That sounds fine to me.
Also, ambient music from speakers is also totally cool so long as there is reasonable agreement among your colleagues as to the music choices.
If there are other things that you think would improve your day, please let me know. I care very much that you look forward to coming to work every day!
The second one reminded everybody who the boss is.

Subj. Please Note
If an email is sent from me with explicit directions, there are only three actions allowed by managers.
- Email me back to explain why what I said was incorrect. Sometimes, I’m just plain wrong!
- Request further clarification if what I said was ambiguous.
- Execute the directions.
If none of the above are done, that manager will be asked to resign immediately.
