“The present is theirs; the future, for which I really worked, is mine.” ― Nikola Tesla
The vision of Nikola Tesla is why we have electricity. He worked for Thomas Edison but Edison hated him, and ignored his inventions. Tesla quit, saying he was going on his own – he couldn’t wait around for Thomas Edison to ‘see the light’ of Tesla’s inventions and Alternating Current. Edison was funded by JP Morgan at the time who asked him, “Do you have any competition, Edison?” Edison replied, “No, no one.” He was wrong.
While Edison had laughed at Tesla’s ideas, George Westinghouse gladly heard his story and funded Tesla’s electrical current invention. Westinghouse’s calculated risk not only helped Tesla light up the Chicago World Fair in 1893, Westinghouse Electric was born from Tesla’s work and to this day we all benefit from the vision of Nikola because they pioneered long distance power transmission.
Edison had also bid to light up the World Fair in 1893. . . he lost to Tesla.
Tesla’s unwavering vision of the future put an end to Edison’s electricity system, but it was never about winning to Tesla, it was about doing the best, right thing.
Vision, invention and calculated risk.
