Since venturing down as Microsoft’s CEO in 2000, Bill Gates has seen his image change from that of a smart businessman to a motivating humanitarian looking to deal with the social problems of the world.
Presently, Gates consistently gives his insight he’s gained through the years to inspire people to dream greater, think all the more decidedly and be a supporter for good. And he gives all of this advice for free.
On Monday, Gates tweeted 14 tweets – what appeared like a whole graduation speech.
Gates’ tweetstorm is an individual reflection on the ways he’s developed since he was a young man. He concedes that it took him “decades” to find out about imbalance, and he says he never again accepts there is just a single approach to gain insight. He likewise expresses a theory that drives what he does: the idea that the world is consistently showing signs of improvement, which is not at all regrettable.

The contention for that, Gates stated, is laid out in a 2011 book called “The Better Angels of Our Nature.” Written by Harvard brain research teacher Steven Pinker, the book endeavors to clarify why, as the New York Times says, “our era is less violent, less cruel and more peaceful than any previous period of human existence,” in spite of features that may shout in actuality.
“That matters,” Gates tweeted, “because if you think the world is improving, you need to spread the advance to more people and places.”
So with that suggestion, “Better Angels” is surging on Amazon. As of Monday evening, it had ascended in Amazon’s business rankings by more than 6,000 percent in the past 24 hours.
“If I could give each of you a graduation present, it would be this — the most inspiring book I’ve ever read,” Gates tweeted.
New graduates or something else, many people have all the earmarks of taking his recommendation.
