Bill Gates’s 11 Tips For Success You Will Not Learn In School:
1: Life is not always fair. You’ve got to quickly get used to it.
2: The world will expect you to accomplish something before you feel good about yourself.
3: You will NOT make great money in a year right out of high school. Stop dreaming about that.
4: You think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.
5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping and that was an opportunity.
6: If you mess up, it’s not your parents’ fault, so don’t brag about your mistakes – learn from them.
7: Learn to say No. You’ve got to learn to say NO and avoid meaningless activities and engagements.
8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life has not.
9: Life is not divided into terms. You don’t get summers off, and very few employers are interested in helping you “find yourself”. Do that in your own time.
10: TV is not real life. In real life, people have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.
11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you’ll end up working for one!
