Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg either have zero work-life balance or he’s actually pretty good at it. 

  • Spends 50 to 60 hours a week actually working
    During a 2015 Facebook Q&A session, Zuckerberg revealed that he only spends 50 to 60 hours a week actually working; a very reasonable number for a tech CEO of one of the biggest companies in the world. But if you were to include the time he spends thinking about Facebook’s mission, well, it paints a different picture. 

[“I spend most of my time thinking about how to connect the world and serve our community better, but a lot of that time isn’t in our office or meeting with people or doing what you’d call real work,” he said. “If you count the time, I’m in the office, it’s probably no more than 50-60 hours a week. But if you count all the time I’m focused on our mission, that’s basically my whole life.”]

  • Thinks how to serve best
    “I really want to clear my life to make it so that I have to make as few decisions as possible about anything except how to best serve this community,” Zuckerberg explained. “I’m in this really lucky position, where I get to wake up every day and help serve more than a billion people. And I feel like I’m not doing my job if I spend any of my energy on things that are silly or frivolous about my life.” 
  • Occasionally travels
    Mark occasionally travels and isn’t in the office, but it seems like it’s more likely that his appointments come to our headquarters than vice versa. 

He takes his job very seriously not just as a businessman but as a leader; he has helped keep the company culture what it is. 

  • Spends his time to expand his ideas
    When he’s not working, Zuckerberg spends some time expanding his mind. He’s learning Mandarin Chinese. He also tries to tackle as many books as he can — in 2015, he challenged himself to read a new book every two weeks. 

FAMILY MAN MARK Whether he’s traveling or working, Zuckerberg also spends time with his wife, Dr. Priscilla Chan, and his daughter, Max. He took a two-month parental leave from Facebook after she was born in December 2015. In March 2017, the couple announced that they are expecting another daughter.

  • Prayer before
    “I am reminded of a prayer ‘Mi Shebeirach, [a traditional Jewish prayer] that I say whenever I face a big challenge that I sing to my daughter, thinking of her future when I tuck her in at night,” he said. “And it goes, ‘May the source of strength who has blessed the ones before us help us find the courage to make our lives a blessing.’”
