Take away just one daily decision in your life and success will follow, maybe. Many years ago, Mark Zuckerberg made a momentous decision that would literally change his life. Anxious to clear away the trivial decisions of life, he committed to wearing the same grey t-shirt every day. Granted he has hundreds of the same shirt, but that choice remains a part of his life and how he starts his day.
“I really want to clear my life so that I have to make as few decisions as possible about anything except how to best serve this community,” Zuckerberg told a crowd of staff and press during a Q & A at Facebook’s California headquarters. “I’m in this really lucky position where I get to wake up every day and help serve more than one billion people, and I feel like I’m not doing my job if I spend any of my energy on things that are silly or frivolous about my life, so that way I can dedicate all of my energy towards just building the best products and services.”
The extra thinking time has worked to expand his vision of the network. He is currently working toward making Facebook a vital part of users’ lives and not just a social network. According to The Telegraph, Zuckerberg has plans to make Facebook, “as vital as electricity.”
“The services that we aspire to be like in the world are kind of these basic things that you rely on,” Zuckerberg said.
Wearing one single designed t-shirt for an entire adult lifetime feels good.
