比尔盖茨的九个激发灵感的金句

中学时代,比尔盖茨以1590分的SAT成绩,考入了哈佛大学,虽然中途辍学,但是谁也不能否认他是一个特别优秀的学生。辍学后的盖茨是微软公司创建者之一,公司建立于1975年。比尔盖茨的梦想是让每户家庭的每个办公桌上都有一台电脑 ,他建立的电脑帝国,改变了所有人的生活,让科技更好得被普通人所用,让自己的梦想成为了现实。

我试着摘录几个和大家分享,水平有限,如有错误,望请斧正。关于成功,他说,成功是一个糟糕的老师,他诱惑人们总是惦记着不能失败。总是害怕失败,被失败的想象困扰,怎么能成功?这条是关于革新的:人类最大的贡献不是发现了什么,而是怎样用发现的东西来减少人与人之间的不平等。我们发现随着科技的发展,确实不同程度地减少了人与人之间的不平等!关于抉择的,他说,同样的决定不能做两次。如果你今天的看法和昨天的看法是一样的,说明你没有进步,你的思维落后了。怎样持之以恒?找到志同道合的人,发现前进道路中的阻碍,寻找方法清除它们。对于发展这样的大问题,他说,创造力是进步的驱动者。人类的历史都是由伟大的创造力驱动一个个时代向前进步。

9 Inspirational Quotes From Billionaire Entrepreneur Bill Gates

Words of wisdom from the most successful Harvard dropout.

Emily Conklin
– Entrepreneur Staff
Billionaire, innovator, philanthropist, author, Bill Gates has worn a lot of hats — and inspired millions of people.

Having co-founded Microsoft in 1975, Gates paved the path to the revolution of personal computing. Starting with a dream to have a “computer on every desk and in every home,” Gates transformed the complex technology of computers in the 1970s into something accessible for everyday consumers — a mission he was passionate about early on.

At a young age, Gates showed an avid interest in computers, spending as much time as possible in his middle school’s computer lab. At age 13, he created a BASIC program that allowed users to play tic-tac-toe against the machine. He went into business with fast friend and future Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen at age 15 after creating Traf-O-Data, a traffic monitoring program that earned the duo their first $20,000.

Always an excellent student, Gates scored a 1590 out of 1600 on his SAT and enrolled at Harvard University, pleasing his parents who encouraged him to pursue a career as a lawyer. However, two years later Gates dropped out, opting to instead pursue a business partnership with Allen in New Mexico. Micro-Soft, later renamed to be Microsoft, was formed.

The genius behind computers as we know them today is consistently ranked among the wealthiest individuals in the world, a certified billionaire who has since committed his life to philanthropy and charity in his post-Microsoft life. In addition to writing several best-selling books like The Road Ahead, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has raised billions of dollars to combat infectious diseases and elevate the quality of life for impoverished nations around the globe. He has also started the Giving Pledge with his wife and Warren Buffett, asking wealthy people to commit to giving away at least half of their wealth to charities.
