Business Notes: Work Based Learning, Bill Gates Words of Wisdom

Bill Gates – Words of Wisdom

1. Life’s not fair – Get used to it!
2. The world won’t care about your self esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something before you feel good about yourself
3. You will not make $60000 a year right out of university, you won’t be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.
4. If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you have a boss
5. Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: They called it opportunity
6. If you mess up, it’s not your parents fault. So don’t whine about your mistakes, learn from them
7. Before you were born, your parents weren’t as boring as they are now. – They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent’s generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.
8. Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life has NOT! – There are no second chances in life!
9. Life is not divided into semesters. 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 actually have to leave the coffee  shop and go to their jobs.
11. Be nice to nerds. Chances are you’ll end up working for one!
