Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg wears the same gray T-shirt in almost every pulic appearances he makes. Now this is something you have seen but have not stuck your mind. Yesterday in his first public Q&A sessions, Zuckerberg asked his followers to ask him any question they have and he would reply them. Among many weird questions one that came up from a user was “Why do you wear the same T-shirt every day?” Well, what Zuckerberg replied will amaze you.

Why Mark Zuckerberg wears the same gray T-shirt everyday

He said that the main aim of his life is to serve the billion people who use Facebook and hence he believes in narrowing down choices for less important things of life so that these does not consume much of the valuable time and energy. In his words,

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.

He also added:

multiple same shirts.

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

    I agree with him. The gray color is an expression of practice and struggle to do the most important things in life. They are connected with work, and not personal.

  • Andres Millard

    The man makes a lot of sense. Taking away one decision from the hundreds we do each day might seem tiny but at a time where we’re just overloaded, things like these do help. I personally and mostly have white, grey, and black attires.

    I think that it is more about looking like a casual, ordinary guy, even bland, so he could appeal to everyone, than “SERVING more than a billion people”. If he wore anything else people would criticize him for that.

  • anwar sadi

    maybe he like to wear and or he feel comfortable so he wear this

  • Elleah Derksen

    I think that it is good that he wants to make as few decisions as possible except for how best to serve the community. He is a smart man.

  • dhisha

    He has a very smart personality and does what he thinks is right. Commenting on his personal choices should not be our priority. Just follow his character and work. That is the most important. Let him wear what he likes. Forget about the clothes that just shows the outer side of a person

    There can be only 2 reasons for wearing same tshirt.first is he is really dedicated which he he is saying or second he is kind of superstitious….in any case he is getting his job done…

  • Rose Faburada

    wow! i guess that gray is his favorite color, or it has meaning for it was the color of the shirt that he was wearing when he discovered facebook ๐Ÿ™‚ just my guess!

  • DzAutoblog

    Jeez.. What a pretentious prick! I seriously can’t stand this dude, everything he says gets on my nerves! Wish I could boycott Facebook just so I stop hearing about him ..

  • Valeri Karavasilev

    Wow I have never suspected that Zuckerberg was such a modest guy.I really appreciate his modesty and care towards the ordinary facebook users.I wish him many all the best in the future.

  • Vineeta Sathyan

    Wow what a great thinking he has, he is a good example of high thinking and low living in modern life. Youngsters should learn from his life. He has changed the concept of social media and has so simple living truly Hats of him…
