Interview with Bill Gates
‘Hard work, without a doubt, is more important to my
success. But not just my hard work. What really matters is
the hard work of people who come to work with me.
Over a period of years, when you're in business building
complex projects and working with customers, success

than brilliance.
There is no secret to success. But certain attitudes and
approaches contribute to success. For example,
knowing the value of time and such.‘
