Value Time - Time truly is one of the most important resources we have in our lives. Bill Gates stated that regardless of the money you have, it is impossible to buy back time. Don’t waste your working hours away, and think wisely about how you are spending every hour of your day.

Innovate Fast - In our ever-changing world, it’s essential to keep up with the constant updates and changes to technology. In a world that is full of new start-ups, you need to always move faster than your competitors. This is how Bill Gates thrived in the business world.

By taking a big risk, this is when you have the chance to win big.

Learn from Failures - Mistakes can act as a lesson to all of us, and Bill Gates is a big believer in this. Instead of sitting around upset about an error, learn from your mistakes and move on. Bill Gates famously said; “It’s fine to celebrate success but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure.”

“Humanity’s greatest advances are not in its discoveries, but in how those discoveries are applied to reduce inequity.”
