At age 13, William Henry Gates, born 28 October 1955, in Seattle, Washington, encountered his first computer at Lakeside School. It was there he taught himself Basic programming, creating just a simple ‘Tic-Tac-Toe’ game.

Deriving pleasure from working with a computer, Gates arranged with company Computer Center Corporation (CCC) to spend time on their computers – learning source code, such as Fortran, Machine Code and Lisp.

Enrolled at Harvard in 1973 to study Mathematics and Computer Science, but loving his own coding and seeing an opportunity to establish his own company, he dropped out of Harvard without finishing his course.

Three years after dropping out of school, Gates in 1976, founded Microsoft and formed a contract with MITS (Micro Instrumentation and Telemetry Systems) to build a basic operating system for new microcomputers.

Hitting success, 1980 launched Microsoft into the limelight, after International Business Machine (IBM) approached them to build a new BASIC operating system for their new computers.

Microsoft has ever since under the leadership of Bill Gates move from one level of success to another, making it now a global entity and the founder, Gates one of the most influential man on earth.

Gates had never really opened up about the real secret to his billion dollars tech conglomerate, save that he’s the co-founder of Microsoft, but his confession to dishwashing has risen science speculation that Gates is trying to show us something, a secret, possibly to how he makes his billions.

Microsoft tech mogul does not seem to stand alone on this, Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon who is now currently the world richest man with an estimated net worth of  $112 billion, said;

“I do the dishes every night. I’m pretty convinced it’s the sexiest thing I do,” in an interview.

While these men have a different reason why they do the dishes, they both attain the same results of heightened productivity that enables them to remain creative to keep multiplying their money.

One study taught volunteers to view doing the dishes as a chance to practice mindfulness by focusing on the present and the sensation of the suds, the warm water, and so forth.

After just six minutes of scrubbing, the meditative dishwashers reported feeling 27% less nervous and 25% more inspired.

A Florida State University study also found that students who were primed to be mindful while washing dishes (i.e. focus on breathing and the touch, smell and feel of the task) saw a decrease in their stress levels and a boost in inspiration. Concentrating on the feeling of the warm water or the smell of the soap stimulated the brain.

Another study by the University of California, Santa Barbara, found that doing mindless tasks allows the brain to wander and engage in creative problem-solving.

For instance, people who first completed a “boring” task, like copying numbers from a phone directory, were able to think more creatively afterwards, according to a study by the University of Central Lancashire.

Simply put these guys are at their best when they do the dishes which enable them to think creatively to become billionaires in dollars.
