One of the most important aspects of Microsoft's continued success was Gates' technological knowledge. Three: Take No Prisoners. Gates as a tough deal maker. Four: Hire Very Smart People. Microsoft's famous campus in Redmond creates the perfect environment for high-IQ employees. Five: Learn to Survive. In Microsoft, Gates created a voracious learning machine, a major factor in its success. Six: Don't Expect Any Thanks. At Microsoft, Gates got more media attention than the rest of the IT industry put together. Much of it was negative. Seven: Assume the Visionary Position. Go up on your mountain. Much of Gates' success was derived from his ability to translate technical visions into marketing strategies. Eight: Cover all the Bases. Gates pursues multiple objectives simultaneously. Nine: Build a Byte-Sized Business. Think big but keep it simple. Ten: Never, Ever, Take Your Eye Off the Ball. Despite his enormous wealth and achievements, Gates remained relentless at Microsoft.

Great CEOs know when it is time to move on to new challenges. The way Gates managed his exit as a fulltime employee at Microsoft should be a lesson to all leaders. How to Get Rich the Bill Gates Way.
