As the CEO of Microsoft, Gates once expressed an ideology now in demand in people-centered work cultures: “As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others.”
One thing remains more true now than ever Good leaders set themselves apart by effectively influencing and empowering their human workers in a time of crisis. They do it by responding daily to the challenges facing their people and doing whatever it takes to protect employees or the business.
This is how great leaders courageously shine with heroic displays of empathy and compassion .
Gates stressed the critical importance of curiosity as a framework for acquiring knowledge.
Gates has maintained an incredible appetite for curiosity and learning new things over the years. In an interview with The New York Times, Gates said he reads up to 50 books each year.
Not only is curiosity key to the learning process, but it’s also great for overall life satisfaction, according to science. Several research studies suggest curious people have better relationships, connect better, and enjoy socializing more.
Bill Gates has offered a lot of guidance regarding how to carry on with a fruitful life or lead an effective business. The high bar that the Microsoft fellow benefactor sets day by day isn't difficult to reach.
It will be that as it may require creating and pursuing some new routines. Clearing your own street to progress implies dreaming less and accomplishing a greater amount of what Gates himself has done while turning into the world's fourth-most extravagant individual.
Here are four things that plainly isolated the practitioners from the visionaries:
Gates admits delegating didn’t come easy to him in the early days of Microsoft. He knew his obsession with programming wasn’t sustainable if the company was to scale, so he had to consciously trust other people’s ability to write software.
As Microsoft grew, so did his management responsibilities. Gates soon realized that he had to learn to delegate his weaknesses like managing the people side of the business.
If your responsibilities have outgrown your capacity to handle them, the first pillar to successful delegation is to have a great team around you who can handle the task.
Gates is also quick to acknowledge his close pal Warren Buffett as a teacher whose wisdom has made a huge impact on his life.
“No matter how much money you have, you can’t buy more time,” writes Gates. “There are only 24 hours in everyone’s day.Warren has a keen sense of this. He doesn’t let his calendar get filled up with useless meetings.”
And successful people, like Buffett and Gates, are keenly aware of centering their whole day around the things that matter the most. They manage themselves extremely well in order to manage their time to focus on that “one thing.”

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
