Bill Gates Think Week

Bill Gates started taking “Think Weeks” back in the 90s to help him think and process. He used to call them CPU time. CPU is the central processing unit of a computer and it takes time to process data. That time is very short for computers but Bill Gates needed a week to process data and think about new ideas. He would read an average of 17 books during these think weeks.

He would go to a cabin on a lake, with a pen and paper and Diet Coke, no electronics other than occasionally. Here are some photos I took off a documentary on Netflix titled: Inside Bill’s Brain.
