Bill Gates Rules: 11 things they don't teach in school

Rule 1: Life is not fair...get used to it.

Rule 2: The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will
expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

Rule 3: You will NOT make $40,000/year right out of high school. You
won't be a vice-president with a cell-phone, until you earn both.

Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.
He doesn't have tenure.

Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your
grandparents had a word for flipping burgers-they called it opportunity.

Rule 6: If you mess up it's not your parents fault, so don't whine
about your mistakes, learn from them.

Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they
are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your
clothes, and listening to how cool you are. So before you save the
rain forest from the parasites of your parents' generation, try
delousing the closet in your own room.

Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but
life hasn't. In some schools they have abolished failing grades and
they'll give you as many times as you want to get the answer right.
This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers and
Christmas break off, and very few employers are interested in helping
you find yourself. Do that on you own time.

Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually
have to leave the coffee shop and go to work.

Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one
