Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg explains he wears the same gray t-shirt every single day because it helps him make Facebook better.
In his first ever public question and answer posted to the company's Facebook page, when asked about his repetitive wardrobe, Zuckerberg responded making one less decision every morning helps him give more energy to his company.
"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 so that way i can dedicate all of my energy towards building the best products and services."
