Life is not just for working
Bill Gates wrote in the blog that when I was at the age of my children, I did not pay attention to weekends and holidays. In my youth I did not believe in these things. I did not understand any importance of these. But, when I became a father and gradually started growing older, I realized that there is more to life than work. Life is not just for working.
Real life experiences are very useful
He further wrote that real life experiences are as important in life as your work. These experiences are very useful for you. The wisdom I gained from watching my children grow up is something you cannot get anywhere else. It cannot be compared with anything else.
There is a discussion in India regarding working hours
This blog of Bill Gates came at a time when there is a discussion about working hours in India. Infosys founder Narayana Murthy had recently said that if the country wants to develop then the youth should work 70 hours a week. He said that I used to work for about 90 hours. After this a big debate broke out on social media. People had criticized that in many offices, no attention is paid to the mental and physical health of the employees. Besides, the salary is also very low.
