Silicon Valley is a place known for hard-charging, ambitious people. And Elon Musk is, naturally, no exception. Depending on who you ask, he might be a bit too focused on work.

The Washington Post recently broke down interesting quotes from a new biography of Musk, and one of them was this alleged email:

That is no excuse. I am extremely disappointed. You need to figure out where your priorities are. We’re changing the world and changing history, and you either commit or you don’t.

Musk, showing a relatively recent awareness of PR, has categorically denied that he ever sent the email. Still, it’s just one more tidbit to add to Musk’s legend. If nothing else, he still looks better than Steve Jobs.
