Idea Man

I fell asleep napping to this badass book, “Idea Man” by Paul Allen.

This is the inside story on how Paul Allen and Bill Gates built Microsoft. Imagine if you were the one who had an idea to build a massive company at a young age.

My main takeaway from this book is: “Start as young as you can”.

Procrastinate and waste years “finding yourself” at your own risk…

Paul Allen and Bill Gates started building Microsoft around the age of 13. Instead of just playing video games as teenagers, they were BUILDING the video games, haha.

P.S. If you’re reading this and you’re a bit older, don’t worry, the takeaway still applies. Get started quickly on whatever it is that you’re destined for in life. No more procrastinating.

P.P.S. Paul Allen and Bill Gates started with a big idea, but nobody was paying attention. They became masters of getting people to pay attention.
