“Our challenge is to create a world where everyone has a sense of purpose”
– Mark Zuckerberg –
Part of what he’s learned so far, is that when people don’t have a sense of purpose, that’s when their lives seem to veer off track.
“As I’ve traveled around, I’ve sat with children in juvenile detention and opioid addicts, who told me their lives could have turned out differently if they just had something to do, an after school program or somewhere to go. I’ve met factory workers who know their old jobs aren’t coming back and are trying to find their place,” he says.
“To keep our society moving forward, we have a generational challenge — to not only create new jobs, but create a renewed sense of purpose.”
“Change starts local. Even global changes start small — with people like us. In our generation, the struggle of whether we connect more, whether we achieve our biggest opportunities, comes down to this — your ability to build communities and create a world where every single person has a sense of purpose.”
