Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg crowdsources ideas for New Year resolution

Having understood the implication of asking the vast userbase of Facebook for suggestion, Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, went crowdsourcing for ideas to add to his New Year’s personal challenge.

In his Facebook update, he listed a few of the challenges he completed in past few years. The list includes

Learning to speak Madarin
Meeting one person who doesn’t work at Facebook everyday
Writing a thank you note each day to someone who made the world better
At his last town hall Q&A someone had asked him about his new years challenge and he replied he’d love ideas from the community.

So here he is asking for ideas.

I’m crowdsourcing ideas for my next year’s personal challenge.
For background, every year I take on a challenge to broaden my perspective and learn something about the world beyond my work at Facebook.
In past years, some of my challenges have been:
– Learning to speak Mandarin
– Meeting one new person who doesn’t work at Facebook every day
– Writing a thank you note each day to someone who made the world better
– Being a vegetarian (or only eating meat if I killed the animal myself)
– Wearing a tie every day
At our last town hall Q&A, someone asked me what my challenge will be for the new year and I said I’d love ideas from our community.
I have an idea of what my next challenge might be, but I’m open to more ideas before the new year officially begins. So share your ideas here!
