Forbes top billionaires

3/10/2005 10:20:00 PM, posted by anand

Forbes released its top billionaire list. Bill Gates made it to the top yet again. Lakshmi Mittal is at number 3. He is an Indian by birth and has made most of his fortune by buying up steel companies (ofcourse, that means that he had a lot to start with). Silicon valley has plenty of billionaires too, including Larry Page, Sergey Brin and Eric Schmidt - Google, Steve Jobs - Apple, Larry Ellison - Oracle, David Filo and Jerry Yang - Yahoo.

If you look at it, all the guys listed in the technology industry are at the top of their game. None of them is resting on their laurels. They go about their respective businesses everyday. Their companies are the top of tier in their respective fields. I am amazed at their motivation level given all the cash that is already stashed in their bank.

I wish, I had the motivation of these guys.
