“Every year I challenge myself to learn new things and to grow in my work on Facebook,” Zuckerberg wrote in a post two years ago.
From learning a new language to writing a thank you note in one day for a year, all the challenges Zuckerberg faced have helped him grow more in all aspects.
The founder of Facebook Always try to be clear about their purposes. For example, 2017 was visiting people from every state in the United States to find out how they live and work for the future. and is that Facebook is already a social vehicle that gives voice and connects all people.
But it’s also true that this social network helped create a separation between communities, and that’s why Zuckerberg tries to hear different opinions in order to know how to strengthen the community and help create a better future.
Here are some of Zuckerberg’s New Year resolutions over the past few years, and his lesson behind them.
1. Use technology to make life a lot easier
Zuckerberg’s goal for 2016 was’to invent’ and that was what made him run his artificial intelligence system for his home.
It was late last year when Mark was creating Jarvis (inspired by Iron Man) who can control music, recognize faces and entertain his two year old daughter. Leveraging today’s technology is not about creating a robot, it is about challenging yourself to find ways to make your life easier.
2. Educate yourself
You don’t have to travel to cultivate. In 2015, Zuckerberg made it a goal to read a new book every week to learn more about different cultures, beliefs, stories and technologies.
“Books are a better way to explore a subject, so you can learn more about the news that the media doesn’t deal with,” he wrote in a Facebook post.
3. Exercise humility
In a world where we all write “thank you” by email, in 2014 Zuckerberg set out to handwrite thank you notes every day.
Make a simple printout of gratitude Journal gives you the opportunity to develop your humility and authenticity.
4. Meet people outside of the office
Don’t let the walls of your office be the shape of the people you interact with. Use your 9-6 time to connect with your community and meet people.
By 2013, Zuckerberg had set himself the goal of meeting one person outside the office every day. After starting this activity, the CEO of Facebook announced capital “that everything went well because it gave him the opportunity to do many things within the church.”
5. Pay attention to details
As CEO and founder, Zuckerberg doesn’t always have the time to be so attentive to details, even though he is genuinely aware that without them Facebook would not exist.
Because of this, their challenge in 2012 was to code on a daily basis to get in touch with their employees and better understand Facebook at all levels Business Insider.
6th Make a sacrifice
Zuckerberg’s challenge in 2011 was to become a vegetarian because he assured me that he would only eat the meat that he himself murdered.
“To practice gratitude, I want to be more connected to food than to food and to the animals that gave their lives for it to be,” he said on Facebook.
Practice gratitude by stopping doing things that you take for granted every day. That way you will appreciate them more.
7. Challenge intellectually
In 2010, Zuckerberg challenged himself to learn Mandarin. And not only did he do it to better communicate in business, it’s also the native language of his wife’s relatives. Zuckerberg demonstrated his language skills in a question-and-answer session at Tsinghua University in Beijing in 2015.
As a result, Mark removed barriers and learned from another culture while addressing his “problem” with language learning in the past, he said in a Facebook post.
8. Find unique ways to motivate your employees
In 2009, Zuckerberg decided to swap his sweatshirts and shirts for a tie. That’s how it is. It was during the severe industrial problem in the United States (and the world) after the 2008 recession.
“Big companies like to invest more while many others pull out during a recession. Big companies make sure they’re strong and sustainable. My bond is a symbol of how serious and important this year has been,” he said.
