Mark Zuckerberg: Why You Should Start A Company With Your Friends
The other day at a question-and-answer session in Bogotá, Colombia, someone asked Mark Zuckerberg, “What was the exact moment where you got the inspiration to create Facebook?”
His response: “I don’t think that’s how the world works.”
In other words, monumental developments, whether in business, politics, science, art and so on, are not products of any single idea or person. It takes far more than the genius of an individual to make a great idea a reality. Or as Zuckerberg puts it:
Ideas typically do not just come to you. They happen because you’ve been talking about something, or thinking about something and talking to a lot of people about it for a long period of time.
It’s a lot different dots that you connect so that you finally realize that you can potentially do something and then you start working on it and realize that maybe it actually will work.
In his view, media outlets make it appear as though starting a company is much more “challenging and crazy” than it really is. It also “drives him a bit crazy” that people assume he essentially started Facebook by himself.
