Mark Zuckerberg has a new goal for the year: write a thank you note every day

Posted Jan 30, 2014

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg sets an interesting resolution and goal for himself every year at the beginning of every year.


In 2011, Zuckerberg vowed to only eat meat from animals that he killed himself. This was followed by learning Mandarin and meeting a new person every day. This year, he made it a goal to write a thank-you note every day, according to BusinessWeek.

“It?s important for me, because I?m a really critical person. I always kind of see how I want things to be better, and I?m generally not happy with how things are, or the level of service that we?re providing for people, or the quality of the teams that we built. But if you look at this objectively, we?re doing so well on so many of these things. I think it?s important to have gratitude for that,” said Zuckerberg in the BusinessWeek interview.
