Melinda Gates on

Melinda Gates on Parenting Bill Gates Continued from page 108 that you succeed in their eyes by how you treat them, I think that’s pretty basic and it gives you the platform on which to try out new things, to fail, you know, first you’re not going to succeed in various things, so selfconfidence is primary and then finding your passion is an adventure, a quest that may take time, and it may switch over the time of your life, but those deep relationships will let you pursue it with vigor. Bill Gates was asked how he has managed to succeed in a predominantly extroverted world and how the education system can harness the positive features of introverted personalities. Gates’ response was as follows: Well, I think introverts can do quite well. If you’re clever you can learn to get the benefits of being an introvert, which might be, say, being willing to go off for a few days and think about a tough problem, read everything you can, push yourself very hard to think out on the edge of that area. Then, if you come up with something, if you want to hire people, get them excited, build a company around that idea, you better learn what extroverts do, you better hire some extroverts, like Steve Ballmer I would claim as an extrovert, and tap into both sets of skills in order to have a company that thrives both as in deep thinking and building teams and going out into the world to sell those ideas. A PERSON’S PRAYERS ARE ANSWERED RIGHT AWAY IF HE HAS A CERTAIN CHARACTER TRAIT IMPORTANT TO Hashem. WHAT CHARACTER TRAIT IS IT? Bill Gates’ Kids Giving Gates’ Kids a Meaningful Life The rich are different from you and me, but they still want to give their kids an allowance. So what do the children of the richest man in the world do with their money? Melinda Gates focuses on helping women and children. But, she spilled some secrets about how she tries to get her kids to be more purposeful with their money. First of all, she tries to be true to her values by articulating them and living them out. Additionally, Melinda says they do a lot of volunteering together for “whatever tugs at their heartstrings…They have that connection, I think, to the developing world.” And of course, they’ve traveled with her. “They see the difference a flock of chicks makes in a family’s life. It’s huge.” Melinda Gates On Her Kids’ Allowance Bill and Melinda Gates are trying, just like the rest of us, to ensure their three children think about others. That’s why the über-rich couple make sure their trio set aside a portion of their allowance for charity. She’s similarly rigorous about her home life. Her kids save a third of their allowance and designate a charity they’d like to give it to. As further incentive, their parents double the amount of their children’s donations.
