Mark Zuckerberg is known to be a man of great discipline. Every year in January, Facebook’s very own co-founder and CEO keeps the world updated of his New Year’s Resolutions, ranging from the incredibly inspiring to the downright bizarre.
In 2009, for example, Zuckerberg vowed to wear a tie for each day he worked. Apparently, the tie symbolized the seriousness and importance of that year, as well as his seriousness about Facebook and his job. In 2012, his goal was to code every day. Although he was already proficient in coding, he wanted to brush up on his skills in order to communicate with his engineers better and therefore, run Facebook better. In 2016, Zuckerberg aimed to build an AI system– a kind of smart home system for his own house. He also declared 2016 to be his “year of running” and made it his goal to run 365 miles.
And now, in 2019, Zuckerberg has a new goal: to host regular public discussions on his Facebook, Instagram, or other social media about technology and society. “Every few weeks I’ll talk with leaders, experts, and people in our community from different fields and I’ll try different formats to keep it interesting,” the Facebook CEO says in a post. “[The chats] will focus on the opportunities, the challenges, the hopes and the anxieties of how technology will shape human behavior.”
Zuckerberg has achieved most of his yearly goals these past few years, so we can only hope that he succeeds in this one as well!
