Ozzie Dreams Rather than Thinks

Bill Gates was known for his "ThinkWeeks" where he would go off, usually with a ton of books and documents from top company techs, and read and think and think and read. He would often come back with new missions, such as the time he turned the entire company around to focus on the Internet.

Ray Ozzie is a different animal. Like Bill, he likes to go off on his own, but Ozzie prefers to dream -- to avoid all outside stimuli, clear his mind and dream about the future.
