Bill Gates' 11 Rules

Recommended Posts




Bill Gates recently gave a speech at a High School. 



Rule 1 : Life is not fair - get used to it!

Rule 2 : The world doesn't care about your self-esteem. 

The world will expect you to accomplish something 

BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

Rule 3 : You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. 

You won't be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.

Rule 4 : If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss

Rule 5 : Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. 

Your Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: 

They called it opportunity.

Rule 6 : If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, 

so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them.

Rule 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..

Rule 8 : Your school may have done away with winners and losers, 

but life HAS NOT. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades 

and they'll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. 

*This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

Rule 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 on your own time.

Rule 10 : Television is NOT real life. 

In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

Rule 11 : Be nice to nerds. 

Chances are you'll end up working for one..

I've always enjoyed this email. Good rules, but Bill Gates didn't say them:



Thanks for letting us know this list has been falsely attributed to Bill Gates. I hate it when I receive an email from someone I trust and it turns out to be false. They were duped just as I was duped. There is a lesson to be learned in that. You should always investigate something before you forward it on. I will try not to do it again. Thanks again Chuck. :)
