4 Powerful Lessons From Mark Zuckerberg That Will Inspire You

Mention Mark Zuckerberg and everyone will shout “Facebook”. Did you also know that Mark has set up many other companies and organisations such as Wirehog and Internet.org?

Facebook was founded in a dormitory room in Harvard University by Mark Zuckerberg and 4 other friends. The rest is history.

Without boring you with the details, here are 4 powerful and inspirational lessons from Mr Facebook.

#1 Create value

Creating a product or service that’s the world needs or wants is a sure way to wealth and fame. Facebook brings massive value to everyone – Long-lost friends are reconnected, celebrations of life’s milestones are shared, products and services are made known to the masses more effectively.

For us, creating value can be as simple as showing initiative to help your colleagues at work, improving on work processes to improve productivity and efficiency, or even offering constructive suggestions.

#2 Care more

Mark Zuckerberg was surprised that no one created a platform to connect people like Facebook.

“Someone needs to build a service like this for the world. But I just never thought that we’d be the one to help do it. And I think a lot of what it comes down to is we just cared more.”

Look around you. You can start off by asking your colleagues how they are and how you can be of help.

#3 Do your best and constantly improve

This lesson is linked to Point 2. When you care more about your work, you will look to put in your best and improve. You won’t need your supervisor or manager to tell you this.

You will automatically check your work before submitting it, ask for help way before the deadline and improve yourself by reading useful articles and watching helpful videos.
