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.

Thought of the Day

This rock is a history book of 350 Million years of history. Each inch narrates a history of about 10,000 years. Every page of this book, with all the plant and animal fossils within it, matches the model of evolution. Not one contradiction. Not one exception. Never has been a theory more proven in science, to the extent that it is now the basis of all modern understanding of science.

Unfortunately, as an engineer, I didn’t get to understand it till I was in my late 20’s.

If you don’t understand the theory of evolution, take few months of reading on it, for it is the ABC’s of the education of a modern man. Without understanding it, you are choosing to be scientifically illiterate. HIGHSCHOOL and COLLEGE won’t teach it. It is a personal effort.
