|Amazing Things You Should Learn From Mark Zuckerberg – Facebook Owner by Two5tech: 7:54am On Aug 30, 2018|
Every year, I take on a personal challenge to learn new things and grow outside my work at Facebook,” Zuckerberg wrote in facebook post last year. From picking up a new language to writing a thank you note every day for a year, each of Zuckerberg’s challenges has served a purpose bigger than himself.
After what Zuckerberg calls a “tumultuous” 2016, the Facebook founder has made it his 2017 resolution to visit and meet people in every state in the U.S. by the end of the year. It’s his goal to learn how people around the country are “living, working and thinking about the future.” Facebook has been a social vehicle that has connected the world and given many people a voice. However in some cases it has also created division. Zuckerberg wants to hear different opinions and voices, figure out how he can empower people and help create a better future.
Personal, social and business challenges inspire Zuckerberg’s yearly resolutions. The challenges never apply to just one area in his life, either — he makes sure that he will benefit from them in a number of ways. Studying Mandarin Chinese in 2010 helped him communicate for business, learn about a different culture and tackle his lifelong struggles with mastering a new language. When he created an AI system, “Jarvis,” to control his home in 2016, he found a way to apply his technical skills and today’s technology to make his life easier.
Check out some of Zuckerberg’s most legendary New Year’s resolutions and discover the larger lessons behind them.

Zuckerberg’s 2016 resolution theme was “invention,” which is why he challenged himself to create an AI system to run his home. By the end of December 2016, Zuckerberg had successfully built “Jarvis” — inspired by Iron Man — that can control appliances, plays music, recognize faces and even entertain his two-year-old daughter. By utilizing today’s technology — which doesn’t necessarily mean building a robot for your house — and challenging yourself to be more inventive, you can find ways to make your life easier and daily routines more efficient.
You don’t need to travel to become cultured. Instead, use the resources around you to educate yourself. In 2015, Zuckerberg challenged himself to read a new book every other week in order to learn about different cultures, beliefs, histories and technologies. “Books allow you to fully explore a topic and immerse yourself in a deeper way than most media today,” he wrote in a Facebook post.
