Bill Gates: These Are the 2 Questions I Use To Tackle Every Big Problem From Microsoft To COVID-19
If you want to tackle problems the same way as Bill Gates, you need to start with two simple questions: “Who has dealt with this problem well? And what can we learn from them?”
“Ever since I was a teenager, I’ve tackled every big new problem the same way: by starting off with [those] two questions. I used this technique at Microsoft, and I still use it today,” Gates wrote in a GatesNotes blog published Tuesday.
Gates, who is currently worth $118 billion, famously dropped out of Harvard to start Microsoft with Paul Allen in 1975, and today spends his time working for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. In his role as a scientific philanthropist, he has been an active participant in the global fight against the novel coronavirus.
