Bill Gates on his 20-year-old Self!
World’s second-richest person Bill Gates speaking at an event hosted for founders said that his 20-year-old self is so disgusted.
During the discussion, he shared his views on work-life balance and how it has changed compared to an earlier point in his life.
“My 20-year-old self is so disgusted with my current self,” he said. He said, “You could over worship and mythologize the idea of working extremely hard…I didn’t believe in vacations.”
“Once I got into my 30s, I could hardly imagine how I’d done that. Because by then, some natural behavior kicked in, and I loved weekends,” he added.
He also said that his girlfriend liked vacations. “I take a lot of vacations now because my girlfriend loved it,” he said.
