Maintaining Focus and Bill Gates

?Maintaining focus is a key to success. You should understand your circle of competence, the thing that you?re good at, and spend your time and energy there.? (Bill Gates, Column, New York Times Syndicate, March 12, 1997) ?Today, I work because it?s fun. In that sense, I guess you could say that I approach business as a kind of problem-solving challenge. That doesn?t mean I don?t take business seriously, because I do. But life?s a lot more fun if you treat its challenges in creative ways.? (p. 39, Bill Gates Speaks, by Janet Lowe, John Wiley & Sons, Inc.)
