It is the 29th anniversary of the most important day in Bill Gates's life. Here is the story




The date was July 5, 1991, and Bill Gates was already a 34-year-old billionaire, running one of the most successful and important companies in the world – yet a business known from the outside as the "Evil Empire". "

Gates was a very busy person. Still, it turns out that his parents had lunch with someone else they wanted him to meet: Warren Buffett.

" It was a fun event because my mom was very easy going and always gathered people, "Gates told a group of students during a joint appearance with Buffett." At this time, I didn't think vacations were entirely focused on my job. So when she said to me, "You have to come out and meet Warren …" I said, "Mum, I & # 39; m busy! & # 39; "

By the way, July 5, 1

991 was a Friday, which means many Americans enjoyed a four-day summer weekend. But Gates had plans to work until he was called in to take the trip out for lunch

As history journals, it was the beginning of a beautiful friendship, if you ask Gates or Buffett, the two men talked for hours that day, and struck up a friendship that seems to go deep and true, and which has been more rewarding for both of them.

More than the world, however, it was the spark of a philanthropic bent in Gates that ultimately led to the Giving Pledge, and multibillion-dollar charity efforts from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

it was crucial to Gates because it gave him something he might not even know he needed, and it would be almost impossible to find something else: not just a close friend of Buffett's, but a mentor.

I'm not saying this because Gates was not already successful, he was, and far above that fol most people will ever have the chance to achieve. He was worth more money, had a greater impact on the world than almost any of his peers.

Plus he achieved everything while asking most of what society tells us to do (for example, dropping out of Harvard).

And let's also add that Gates had only really just had one job all his life: Leading and building the gargantuan company he founded, from a small startup to one of the juggernauts in his industry.

But do you know what? It turns out that was not enough.

That is why I wrote recently about the most important decisions Gates made 20 years ago – that is, nine years after he first met Buffett – it meant that he has become the rare person to have a really important second act.

I'm actually willing to bet that 100 years from now, people will remember Gates a lot more for his philanthropy than they will for everything he did as a computer pioneer or entrepreneur and business leader.

Anyway, think back to 1991. If you are Bill Gates, where on earth will you find a mentor? Do you even think you can need one?

So, hats off to the deceased Mary Maxwell Gates then, to make the introduction, and maybe even acknowledge that her son needed one in his life.

Postscript: Can you name the other Harvard-turned-entrepreneur who, like Gates, has only ever had a job (CEO of the company he founded) and who today gives as much money and power as Gates ever did ?

Not only that, but he's almost exactly the same age as Gates was when he met Buffett?

Of course, we're talking about Mark Zuckberberg.

And apologizing for nothing, wouldn't it be terribly smart if Zuckerberg's mother, Karen Kempner, could invite the fine Mr. Gates to lunch once – and maybe convince her son to show up, too?

"It was a fun event because mom is very sociable and always brings people together," Gates told a group of students during a joint performance with Buffett. "At this time, I didn't think vacations were entirely focused on my job. So when she said to me, & # 39; You have to come out and meet Warren ... & # 39; Mom, I'm busy! & # 39; "
