This Habit Fueled Bill Gates’ Success


“In the wee hours of the morning, Gates would sometimes fall asleep at the terminal. He’d be in the middle of a line of code when he’d gradually tilt forward until his nose touched the keyboard. After dozing an hour or two, he’d open his eyes, squint at the screen, blink twice, and resume precisely where he’d left off – a prodigious feat of concentration”.

It’s a perfect example of Deep Work, and it’s the reason why Gates had such a remarkable rise to success while still in his early 20s.
