Busy? Can you say that to Bill Gates? He’s probably the busiest man on earth but he doesn’t seem to complain and he even reads a book once a week.
He seems an expert in all the ways of the world especially business but he keeps feeding his mind with knowledge and that is probably why he’s an insanely successful person. He’s also an activist particularly about climate change.
You’ll find that one of the books he recommends tackle this issue. And despite modernization, he believes in maintaining a proper balance between creating materials and sustainability of the environment. He, himself, wrote a review of this same book.
The book recommendations are a mix of business, environmental, personal and everything in between. Just the kind of topics you would expect a man like him would spare his precious time for to read.
So, you think you’re busy?
What are you doing now watching TV? Stretch your physical and mental muscles and pick at least one of these books to know a little of what Bill Gates know. Because maybe, we all have a Bill Gates in us that we don’t know and that alone would enable us to change the world.
