Today we are excited to be writing an article that’s going to help you understand a little bit more about the world of success.
We know what you’re thinking: “Are you crazy? The whole idea of success is so subjective and complicated that it can’t possibly be boiled down to a simple formula.” Well, let me tell you something: it can. And we are here to help you know a little bit more about someone who is considered the richest man in the world. Any guesses? Most of you might have guessed it right. Yes, it is none other than Bill gates.
We have all heard about how Bill Gates became wealthy and what he does for a livelihood, but today we will not only read but instead, we’ll give you a glance into a day in the life of the father and founder of Microsoft, Bill Gates.
Bill Gates is one of the most successful businessmen in history, having founded Microsoft and turning it into a billion-dollar company. He’s also one of the richest people in the world. What traits do successful people share? They almost all have a set morning routine.
As you can imagine, this guy has a lot of time to think about what makes him tick, and how he can do more for others. One thing that stands out for him is his morning routine— when he wakes up, he starts with a workout. Daily focus and cognition are enhanced by exercising in the morning. There are other benefits as well. Exercising first thing in the morning also improves personal discipline. And then goes to breakfast at his favorite restaurant in Seattle. He likes to eat oatmeal with fresh fruit and nuts, sometimes even adding some yogurt. He says that it’s full of nutrients and protein without being heavy or filling him up too much, so he can get on with his day!
After breakfast, Bill Gates will take a walk outside if it’s nice out or go for a run around the block if it isn’t—he doesn’t like exercising indoors because he finds it boring. He loves going outside because he gets fresh air and exercise while getting some sunshine on his face!
He then starts working on whatever needs doing in his company (which is usually many things). He likes to write emails and make phone calls, but he also enjoys reading news articles online and talking about what’s new with technology trends with other CEOs at conferences around the world.
Despite having a full schedule, Gates sets aside an hour each day for knowledge construction. He is reputed to read 50 novels annually. He can broaden his perspective by reading a book that enables him to perceive something familiar from a different perspective.
Work takes up the majority of Bill Gates’ afternoon schedule. He has the ability to see the future and make preparations. He also shares with his staff his vision for the workplace and his thoughts on it. In concerns to lunch, Gates has a personal favorite dish: the cheeseburger.
One of the craziest things that would be a little hard to digest is that Bill enjoys performing household chores in the evening, such as washing the dishes and cleaning the kitchen. Unbelievable, right? Why someone so rich would does daily chores? Well, the answer is simple, according to research; everyday activities can serve as chances to exercise mindfulness, which can foster serenity and creativity.
One habit that Bill Gates found worked best for him was getting into bed early each night (around 10 pm). Bill Gates is highly conscious of his sleeping patterns because he understands how important sleep is to his ability to be creative. Bill likes to read for 30 minutes before going to bed. This provides him with a good night’s sleep and a new start in the morning by helping to create the ideal sleeping environment. Gates claims that getting seven hours of sleep in deep sleep makes him feel better and helps him start the day productively.
