Abandon literature, history books and embrace start-up hustle: CEO
A world-renowned CEO on Tuesday called on world leaders to abandon literature and history books in schools and colleges in favour of teaching start-up operations, technological innovations, and general profiteering.
The British magnate insisted that the perfect combination of Applied Science and Business will teach adolescents how to strike the industry with scientific innovation and expand their business to make massive profits.
"You want to be part of that 0.000000000001 percent that acquires over 60 percent of the economic pie," he said. "Motivation is a divine gift, but agile work culture is built. Remember, those who invest in other people's wealth through innovative start-ups are the ones who succeed. It's time world leaders prepare our kids for the future!"
He also said most people are lazy and use their brains for imagination without taking action. "All who 'MS Exceled' in the tech industry don't have enough time to read or practise literature. The wealthiest people on the planet are investors, stockholders in tech giants and owners of online businesses. Other than our nation's very own JK Rowling who we are not very proud of, there's not one author or littérateur that has made a fortune," he wrote in his tweet.
"Those who read history hold grudges, and those who read literature are crazy and depressed -- there, I said it," added the scientist. "The way forward is commerce, eh?"
When a Twitter user asked whether his emphasis on start-ups and investments had anything to do with his investment in a certain firm that is currently on life support in Chapasthan, the guru replied that the question just ignored his advice on ignoring history and promptly blocked the user.
