The Wall Street Journal recently wrote a fascinating story about how Microsoft mogul, Bill Gates, takes two "Think Weeks" a year. Gates goes off by himself to a secluded cabin somewhere in Washington state where he isn't interrupted by other people or distractions. A couple months before each "Think Week," Gates' assistant gathers papers from all over the Microsoft empire for review. Aside from beach walks and breaks for Diet Orange Crush, Gates works hard at reading these papers, and often "green lights" projects and new initiatives while on these retreats. One Microsoft staffer refers to the "Think Week" as "the world's coolest suggestion box."
