The First Principles Method Explained by Elon Musk

Interview by Kevin Rose

The benefit of first principles thinking? It allows you to innovate in clear leaps, rather than building small improvements onto something that already exists. Musk gives an example of the first automobile. While everyone else was trying to improve horse-drawn carriages, someone looked at the fundamentals of transportation and the combustion engine in order to create a car.

Naturally Musk does give one warning about using first principles for innovating however, it takes a lot more mental energy.

This video primarily covers First Principles Reasoning/Thinking.
For a video that talks more about First Principles click the link below:

After graduating College in 2016, I've accumulated a lot of knowledge from 52 books (as of this video), and now I want to give back.

I decided to start with First Principles, because it lays the groundwork for all other concepts that I eventually want to present. As I said in the video, I first discovered this idea while watching Elon Musk in an Interview. After reading about Elon Musk's story in Elon Musk by Ashlee Vance, I found that the concept of First Principles is synonymous with who Elon is and that a video I make about First Principles must include him in it.
