Elon Musk is overworked. In a recent emotional interview with The New York Times, Mr. Musk, the chief executive of Tesla, choked up multiple times and said, “This past year has been the most difficult and painful year of my career.” “It’s not been great, actually,” he added. “I’ve had friends come by who are really concerned.” Mr. Musk said that he had been working up to 120 hours a week.
