As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who
empower others. It's fine to celebrate success but it is more important
to heed the lessons of failure. “Your most unhappy customers are your
greatest source of learning” ~Bill Gates
“Every now and then I like to pick up a copy of Times magazine and
read every article from beginning to end, not just the articles that
interest me most,” says Gates. “That way you can be certain to learn
something you didn’t know previously.” Never Stop Learning!!!
“ We weren’t trying to just go public and get rich ,” recalls Gates of his
early Microsoft days. “There was no near-term thing. It always was this
many-decades thing where there were no shortcuts and we’d sort of
put one foot in front of the other.” Long Term Thinking
Team Work!!! While Gates has been the famous face of Microsoft for
over thirty years, it took the help of numerous other trusted individuals
to help realize the company’s success “ At Microsoft, there are lots of
brilliant ideas, but the image is that they all come from the top,” says
Gates. “I’m afraid that’s not quite right.”
