Peter Thiel Explains How To Become The Next Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg

Peter Thiel is a brilliant venture capitalist, entrepreneur, and even philosopher.

He co-founded PayPal and helped finance Facebook while it was just a small company getting started.

His insights about markets and start-ups are priceless and one anecdote in particular stands out above the rest. He explains how you can become, or even find the next Mark Zuckerberg or Bill Gates. But just be aware of one thing: the next Zuckerberg or Gates will do something ENTIRELY different:
"The next Bill Gates will not build an operating system. The next Larry Page and Sergey Brin won't make a search engine. And the next Mark Zuckerberg won't create a social network. If you are copying these guys, you aren't learning from them. 
Of course, it’s easier to copy a model than to make something new. Doing what we already know how to do takes the world from 1 to n, adding more of something familiar. But every time we create something new, we go from 0 to 1. The act of creation is singular, as is the moment of creation, and the result is something fresh and strange." -Peter Thiel
