The Brilliancy of Mark Zuckerberg


1. “In a world that’s changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks.”
2. “The question isn’t ‘What do we want to know about people?,’ it’s, ‘What do people want to tell about themselves?”
3. “I literally coded Facebook in my dorm room and launched it from my dorm room. I rented a server for $85 a month, and I funded it by putting an ad on the site, and we’ve funded ever since by putting ads on the site.”
4. “A squirrel dying in your front yard may be more relevant to your interests right now than people dying in Africa.”
5. “Move fast and break things. Unless you are breaking stuff, you are not moving fast enough.”
6. “This is a perverse thing, personally, but I would rather be in the cycle where people are underestimating us. It gives us the latitude to go out and make big bets that excite and amaze people.”
7. “People can be really smart or have skills that are directly applicable, but if they don’t really believe in it, then they are not going to really work hard.”
8. “People don’t care about what someone says about you in a movie–or even what you say, right? They care about what you build.”
9. “In Silicon Valley, you get this feeling that you have to be out here. But it’s not the only place to be. If I were starting now, I would have stayed in Boston. “
10. “The question I ask myself like almost every day is, ‘Am I doing the most important thing I could be doing?’ …Unless I feel like I’m working on the most important problem that I can help with, then I’m not going to feel good about how I’m spending my time.”
