It’s always interesting to see how some of the top entrepreneurs work on a daily basis. Recently on Quora, someone asked how many hours a week does Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg actually work in the Facebook office.
After about 30 minutes, a designer from Facebook by the name of Lee Byron gave this answer:
“I sit near Mark at FBHQ so I’ll speak from my experience.”
“He’s often in every morning before me and is around after dinner working as well. I would say he’s in the office roughly 9-10 hours a day, 5 days a week.”
“Sometimes we have particularly exciting projects going on that have people volunteering their weekends and Mark might come by and see how things are going.”
“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.”
“I should say that it’s great to have him around with regularity and that he chooses to have the same desk set up as everyone else. He takes his job very seriously not just as a businessman but as a leader; he has helped keep our company culture what it is.”
There’s definitely a lot to learn from this. Mark sets a great example of how you need to run a company. No matter how much you’ve accomplished, the hard work never stops. You need to always be the earliest in the office and the last one out. This helps keep your team motivated and productive. The way he aligns his desk with everyone else puts him in more of a position to lead effectively. It reminds me of the following illustration:
