Miscrosoft Chairman Bill Gates : Part I
Bill Gates spoke before a group of high school students and gave them eleven rules of life, an excerpt from the book “Dumbing Down our Kids” by educator Charles Sykes. The list of eleven things you did not learn in school is directed at high school and college grads.
Here’s number 1: Life is not fair. Get used to it.
Here’s number 2: The world won’t care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.
Here’s number 3: You will NOT make $40,000 a year right out of high school. You won’t be a vice president with a car phone until you earn both.
Here’s number 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss. He doesn’t have tenure.
Here’s number 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger-flipping: opportunity.
Here’s number 6: If you mess up, it’s not your parents’ fault–so don’t whine about your mistakes…learn from them!
