Now playing Faith Evans’s Again. 

If you had to give an advice to your 19-year-old self, what would it be?

On Monday, the founder of Microsoft and co-chair of The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation hosted an “AMA,”session on Reddit where he talked about his favorite holiday spot, views on social media, to name a few.

However, a participant asked an interesting question, he inquired, “If you could give 19-year-old Bill Gates some advice, what would it be?

Bill Gates’s answer:

“I would explain that smartness is not single dimensional and not quite as important as I thought it was back then.

I would say you might explore the developing world before you get into your forties.

I wasn’t very good socially back then, but I am not sure there is advice that would fix that — maybe I had to be awkward and just grow up…”

In other words, Intelligence Is Overrated.


‘Although the Foundation work is super promising and will be the biggest thing over the decades ahead, I still think the chance to be part of the software revolution empowering people was the biggest thing I have gotten to do.’


Warren Buffett has always said the measure is whether the people close to you are happy and love you. It is also nice to feel like you made a difference – inventing something or raising kids or helping people in need.
