News JVTech ‘Tough years ahead’: Bill Gates has what to expect from 2023
As every year, Bill Gates took advantage of the end of the year celebrations to share a long platform on his personal blog entitled “The Future Our Grandchildren Deserve”. Before wishing us a “healthy and peaceful 2023,” the former world’s richest man looks ahead to the challenges ahead in the coming years.
Bill Gates’ fatherhood gives new meaning to his life
At the age of 67 (he had them on October 28), Bill Gates has seen and experienced it all. A happy childhood, a hard-working adolescence, interplanetary success with Microsoft, the title of the world’s richest man, a public divorce and finally a successful turn in philanthropy, haters will easily say when he has more than $100 billion in his accounts. … Except not everyone does it, well, not everyone does it like Bill Gates.
In short, this fine old Bill had lived a very full life, but in his opinion, there was still something missing to make it truly complete… And his eldest daughter, Jennifer, told him the good news on Thanksgiving: Bill will be a grandfather in 2023and obviously it created a strong emotion and new perspectives in the mind of the founding father of Windows.
On his website ”
”, Bill Gates wished him a happy new year by publishing an extensive forum about what he intends to do in the coming years and his vision of the world tomorrow.
titled “The future our grandchildren deserve”, he begins his appeal for the future:
“Times are tough. But I still believe that we can make the world a better place for the next generation. Here’s how.“:
I turned 67 in October. It’s hard to believe I’m so old – most people my age in America are retired!
But I’m not going to slow down the day before. I am continuing at full speed the project I started more than twenty years ago, which is to give most of my resources back to the community. I don’t care where I rank on the list of the world’s richest people, but I know that the more I can donate, the lower I’ll be and eventually I’ll disappear from the list altogether.
I have always seen my philanthropy as a way to help reduce the terrible inequalities I see in the world. I also feel a responsibility to give my wealth back to society in a way that will benefit as many people as possible. But recently, when my eldest daughter gave me the incredible news that I will be a grandfather next year, I began to look at the world from a new perspective.
Just writing “I’m going to be a grandpa next year” makes me emotional. And this idea gives a new color to my creativity. When I think about the world my grandchild or grandchild will be born into, I am more motivated than ever to help everyone’s children and grandchildren have a chance to survive and thrive.
This is a long-term project that requires patience; success in the effort to make the world more just is measured in years and decades. Age can help you understand this better. When I was in my twenties, I didn’t think that people my grandparents’ age had anything useful to offer the world at large. But as I get older, I see how wrong I was.
I do almost all of my work through the Gates Foundation, although most of my climate and clean energy efforts are through Breakthrough Energy, and I separately fund Alzheimer’s research. Global health is a key concern of the foundation because it is the worst inequality on the planet and a problem that can be solved. More than two decades ago, Melinda and I were shocked to learn how little money and effort was being spent on saving children’s lives in poor countries, and we thought the world needed to do more.
“The world is a little more ready for the next pandemic”
Frankly, Bill Gates reminds “five difficult yearsIn the future, he highlights the war in Ukraine, the energy crisis and, of course, returns to the consequences and consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic.
With the pandemic, the war in Ukraine and the economic recession, the past three years have been some of the most difficult in recent memory. During this time, everyone in the world has suffered losses – loved ones, financial security or lifestyle. By virtue of my position, I am not immune to many of these challenges. But I’ve also been through some tough times in the past few years, including the death of my father and the end of my marriage.
As I reflect on the past and look forward to the coming year, I am thankful for the people who have supported me through difficult times in my life. They remind me of what’s important and inspire me to be a better father and friend. Being rich makes my life more comfortable, but not more fulfilling. For that, I need a job that allows me to be with my family, friends, and important work. I am grateful to have all three.
One of the joys of getting older is watching my three children welcome wonderful new people into our family. Last year I had a son-in-law, next year I will be a grandfather. I hope I can be as good with my grandchildren as my father is with my grandchildren.
