Elon Musk has acknowledged that the superhuman regimen of managing not one, not two, but three large firms at once is beginning to take a toll on his 51-year-old body.
It all began after the CEO expressed regret for “squirming around” while testifying in court two weeks prior, attributing it to “very significant back pain” and trouble sleeping the night before.
Then, on Sunday, Musk, who had just been declared not at fault by a jury for his “funding secured” tweet, said that the previous three months had been very difficult.
He had to put in extra effort not just to save Twitter from going bankrupt, but also to carry out crucial tasks for Tesla and SpaceX.
Musk spoke about his rigorous schedule of getting up, working constantly, and then sleeping seven days a week during an investor conference with Tesla bull Ron Baron in November.
He admitted to Twitter users on February 5 that he “wouldn’t wish that suffering on anyone.”
Musk replied with “I’m worried about me too” and a frowning face emoji when someone advised him to take care.
The second-richest person in the world said that the business was on course to break even this year despite dwindling revenue, crippling debt, and user resentment over declining engagement.
Musk declined to elaborate on how he accomplished that achievement or whether it involved more extreme methods, like charging businesses $1,000 each month to maintain their verified status.
After paparazzi photos showed a pasty complexion and an overweight physique, worries about his physical condition had already surfaced throughout the summer.
Later, Musk described the pictures as “helpful motivation to lose weight,” after they were taken in July while he was on vacation on the Greek island of Mykonos.
