Agree on this, very dull. However he is very much goal orientated:
2009 - wear a tie everyday (wtf?)
2010 - learn Chinese
2011 - only eat animals he kills himself (wtf?)
2012 - code everyday
2013 - meet someone everday who's not on fb (hello there!)
2014 - write a thanks note everyday
2015 - read a new book every 2wks
2016 - code a new AI assistant
2017 - Visit all 50 states, meet community leaders
2018 - 'fix' facebook
2020? - Will become 36, thus allowed to run for POTUS
Has also recently hired a load of political goons (officials and ex-campaign managers) to run his foundation. He also gave away stocks/shares of fb (a new stock class), but is still in full control of fb - handy that if you were to, say 'resign due to aquiring a goverment position'.
