Four lessons from Bill Gates

Apply these leadership tips from Bill Gates:

  1. Take two “retreats” every year. Leave your office to develop longrange strategies.
     
  2. Read books on topics that don’t pertain strictly to your business or industry. It’s the best way to maintain a broad perspective.
     
  3. Identify problems early by tracking “exceptions,” such as sales figures that suddenly sag for a particular product. Jump on them right away.
     
  4. Stop at the end of each day to analyze how well you used it. If you wasted time on things you didn’t need to do, eliminate them tomorrow.
