11 Bill Gates ‘ Rules. Bill Gates often attends school and often in his speech he mentions about 11 things , which as he considers , won’t be learned in school. He says that education in the spirit of politically correct teaching created a generation of kids with no concept of reality and will not be able to survive in this severe world. Here are some of them:
Life is not fair – get used to it! If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss. Television is not real life. In real life people have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs. If you mess up , it’s not your parents’fault, so don’t whine about your mistakes, learn from them. Be nice in nerds. Chances are you will end up working for one.
- You will not make $60.000 a year just after high school. You won’t be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both. - The world won’t care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something before you feel good about yourself. If you agree, pass it on. If you can read this – thank a teacher.
