Mark Zuckerberg’s daily routine: sleep, work, sports and family
Distance aside, Mark Zuckerberg’s daily routine could be anyone’s routine, if not for the peace of mind that comes from having a financial cushion that very few can match.
In an interview with American media, the millionaire admitted to following a routine in his daily life so as not to succumb to the pressures and strains of managing a giant of Meta’s stature.
The truth is that since Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan stopped by the rectory in 2012, his life has changed a lot and a lot of the blame falls on his three children.
Mark claims that he goes to bed early to sleep at least eight hours a day, which the tech millionaire monitors in detail using his Oura Ring monitoring ring. A wearable device that has become very popular among millionaires on the other side of the pond.
“Normally, people don’t email me about things that are going well,” Meta’s CEO jokes about the stream of emails that await him first thing every morning.
Waking up early helps you take advantage of that quiet moment, before everyone goes to work, to answer all those emails and then commute to your location at the Meta offices. Which he tried, both actively and passively, to convince his employees to do as well.
Like Jeff Bezos, 20 years at the helm of one of the largest technology companies has helped him learn how to optimize his time very well. Mark Zuckerberg does not allow meetings to last more than an hour, and asks his team not to hold serial meetings. Zuckerberg prefers to separate them by one hour and use this time to read the information and understand the topics that will be discussed in the next meeting, or follow up on previous topics.
Facebook follows Tim Cook’s principles on productivity and prefers to put multitasking aside by focusing only on the important tasks that no one else can do for you. “I think when you’re directing something, you have to get involved in as much detail as possible. Obviously there’s a lot of things I don’t have time to get involved in.”
Sports have become one of Mark Zuckerberg’s biggest passions, and he goes to the gym almost every day. “I try to exercise six or seven days a week.” It is not uncommon to see how the owner of Instagram uploads photos of his workouts to the social network, which brought him some problems when Elon Musk challenged him to a wrestling match in Las Vegas, which, according to Zuckerberg, “no” I think. “This will happen.”
The tech mogul opened up on Lex Friedman’s podcast, where he stated that practicing jiu-jitsu and mixed martial arts (MMA) was not just a way to stay fit (despite his disastrous diet), but became a philosophy through which he could face life’s challenges.
Family has become one of the priorities in Mark Zuckerberg’s life, as he tries to spend as much time as possible with his three daughters: Maxima, 7 years old, August, 6 years old, and newcomer Aurelia, 6 months old.
Zuckerberg spends some time with his daughters before bed, a moment they use to read together and have a good time. “Recently he has been learning all the lyrics to Taylor Swift’s songs,” confirms his wife, Priscilla Chan, in an interview with Forbes magazine. .
This may be one of the results after Zuckerberg’s family attended the millionaire singer’s concert, which the businessman also shared on social networks wearing colorful bracelets and bright makeup. Anyone with daughters will understand good old Mark.
