• Business Insider took a look inside the daily routine of Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
• His typical schedule includes exercise, family time, and tons of travel.
Mark Zuckerberg has a lot on his plate.
The 33-year-old runs Facebook, the social media giant with a market cap of $505.63 billion. What’s more, Facebook just snagged the top spot in Glassdoor’s annual rankings of the most desirable places to work. Reviewers on the career site specifically pointed to Zuckerberg himself as a big draw.
While the tech CEO dedicates a ton of time to the company, Zuckerberg still makes the time to exercise, travel extensively, and spend time with his family.
He stays productive and balanced by eliminating non-essential choices from his life and setting ambitious goals for himself.
Here’s a look at an average day for Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg:

Sometimes he brings his dog Beast along. The tech CEO says running with his pet has the “added bonus of being hilarious” because it’s “basically like seeing a mop run.”
Beast is a Hungarian sheepdog with quite an impressive coat.
Once he’s gotten his exercise in, Zuckerberg’s not too picky about what he eats for breakfast. He’ll usually just dig into whatever he’s feeling that day. He doesn’t like to waste time on small decisions.

That’s also why he wears the same thing almost everyday. Zuckerberg’s work uniform consists of jeans, sneakers, and a gray t-shirt. When asked about his wardrobe in 2014, he told the audience: “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.”

His Palo Alto home is tricked out with a “custom-made artificially intelligent assistant,” according to CNBC.
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.
Zuckerberg’s daily schedule tends to vary more on his frequent travels.

Last year, Zuckerberg embarked on several trips around the US, prompting some to speculate that he’s interested in a future career in politics.
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 August 2017, the couple welcomed second daughter August.
Every night before going to bed, the Facebook CEO tucks Max in with a traditional Jewish prayer, the “Mi Shebeirach.”
