Facebook's Zuckerberg tells middle-schoolers this period of their lives will soon seem irrelevant


Not in so many words, but it’s the gist of it:

“I don’t remember much about my middle school graduation. … When you look back on your middle school graduation, you probably won’t remember that much either.”

You have admit it’s sort of true, but still it seems a little mean to tell this to the graduating eighth graders at Belle Haven Community School in Menlo Park, California. Zuckerberg was drafted in for the task because Facebook is moving its headquarters to Menlo Park.

“A lot of building a company or a product like Facebook is just about determination and believing that you can. … Everything that’s worth doing is actually pretty hard. It’s not about a single moment of inspiration or brilliance, it’s years and years of practice and hard work,” Zuckerberg continued. “There’s no shortcuts.”
