Bill Gates’ parents wanted him to be a lawyer.
What if he had followed through with his parents’ plan and studied pre-law at Harvard instead of founding Microsoft. Would he be arguing cases before the Supreme Court? Would he be sitting on the Supreme Court? (Probably the latter.)
One thing is clear, no matter his profession, Bill Gates would probably be good at it. We’re just lucky he chose computers instead of litigation.
Because without Bill Gates and Microsoft, we’d still be thinking of computers as those IBM machines office workers ran away from every weekday at five o’clock.
